We can get information about various features of our Mac, be it a file, a folder or a drive, easily. Just right-click (right) on the item and select Get details. But for something else, we can use the same tool to see summaries of various elements and display powerful information according to our choice.
Get static information from one or more objects
It is widely used with this tool. We simply choose file, folder or disk and after doing the second click we choose Get details. Alternatively we can select and press Command (⌘) + i.
In doing so, Finder show us many windows as elements
When we only need, for example, to compare the size of a few documents, the system works perfectly. However, when the number of files is high we can eliminate full screen for windows. In this case we will use the summary view.
Get an overview of the information on several things
Summary view we we will show one window and integrated information of all our choices. Getting this idea is really easy: We pick the elements and click them. When we press the control button (⌃) we select it Get summarized information. We can also use Command (⌘) + Control (⌃) + i.
Information panel that Finder We'll show you in this case it will be a little different. You will notify us of the number of selected items, their full size (which should be clean), the type of documents, their locations, but no preview or additional details
Both the Windows information and the Windows information object are designed to be save file selection What we've done. This way we can continue our activities in Finder and the information window will stay on your site. In most cases we would like it, but for others we want to see how the details change depending on our choice, because we will use this tester.
Get a powerful overview of one or more item information
In the dynamic summary view, which we will call the file explorer, we see the same details in the previous summary summary view. The difference? Change depending on our choice
Accessing the file explorer is easy once you've figured out how to do it. We simply select one or more items and after the second click hold down the Option key (⌥) and we choose them Show the inspector. We can also use Command (⌘) + Option (⌥) + i.
As before, a window with information of the selected items will appear, with the difference that now, if we select some objects or unselect details will change in real time.
Without a doubt, finding the right information and the most efficient way for our files, folders or disks is more than just a luxury, a great benefit when working with so many things. Fortunately Apple is very helpful for the job.
