Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

 
 

TidBITS Mailing List Administrivia

Send Article to a Friend

Progress toward moving the TidBITS mailing list from Rice University is continuing, and, barring unforeseen difficulties, this should be the last issue of TidBITS sent via the Rice LISTSERV. If you've recently subscribed, unsubscribed, or altered your subscription, please bear with us for a week or two while we clean up loose ends. We're essentially maintaining two parallel versions of the TidBITS list right now, and there are bound to be some rough edges. In the meantime, if you are not on the TidBITS list and wish to subscribe, send email to <tidbits-on@tidbits.com> rather than working through the LISTSERV. Thanks for your patience! [GD]
