View info of multiple files!

A great tip submitted by Dominic P. Tremblay: View info of multiple files! When you select multiple files in the Finder (but not too many) and you press "Command - I", the info will be displayed in a separate window for each file. There is a point when you select a lot of files that the information is combined in a single window. I find the multiple windows incredibly annoying and I have been looking for a way to always display the "Get Info" window in a single window. Here it is: "Option - Command - I" instead of "Command - I". Thanks for the tip Dominic!

It is not "Show Info", perhaps you can use it as Show Info for group of selections less than 10. Generally, if you select more than 10 items automatically, OS X shows information dialog (command+I) as a group.
What you talked about is "Show Inspector" of MAC OS X feature, which is similar to "Show Info" but the feature varies, you can find in the file menu of finder while pressing the option. Basically "Show Inspector" is used to inspect one or more items at time with you can move from one file to other file or move up or down in list of files or groups.
Don't Learn just short cuts! Realize the actual purpose!!! Happy Inspect!
