    Multiple File tagging
    Okay I need some help. In Windoze I could tag multiple files by holding down the control key and clicking on a file and it would select it. I would use Shift plus clicking to select a continuous file list. How do I do this in Mac?

    Yes, he does.

    Some crazy people persist in calling it the Apple key, even though that has never been its proper name, and even though many Mac keyboards, including the newest ones from Apple, do not have an Apple symbol on them, and even though the help files and tech articles never refer to it as the Apple key.

    I guess they just like confusing people.

    It doesn't really help that I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard either

    Back when I first got my Mac Mini and used the wireless keyboard that I had used on my previous PC, it had the Apple/Command key which could also be used as the Alt key if it was hooked up to a PC. I used my Dremel tool to remove the other multi-function labels on the keys so I wouldn't get as confused during my initial switch.

    Still have that keyboard, now hooked up to a PC that I turn on, oh, about once a month if at all.

    The mac would say "to stop this process type command period"

    Couldn't find they key that said period anywhere
