How to open single Get Info for multiple selected files on Mac

In this guide, we will show you various methods through which you could open a single Get Info window for multiple selected files on your Mac. In Windows, you could easily get hold of multiple selected files just by right-clicking on them and selecting Properties. So when I first made a switch over to macOS, I did just that- selected multiple files and hit Get Info. Unfortunately, it all ended up in a mess.

For the unaware, when you use Get Info on multiple selected files, then it will open an individual Get Info window for each file [I had selected close to 40 files so I ended with 40 standalone windows! In such cases, you just need to select one Get Info window and use Command+Option+W to close all the windows]. If you are also currently in a similar situation, then this guide will help you out.
