Quick Tip #1: Alternative Menu Choices

Normally, choosing "Get Info" from the File menu, or a context-menu, will bring up an Info sheet for every file you have selected at the time.

If you want to see a summary of the files you have selected instead, just hold down "Ctrl" when you have the File menu or a context-menu open, and "Get Info" will change to "Get Summary Info".

Ctrl can be used in other places as-well, to alter the available menu options, so try it out to see the effect. Try using ⌥ for even more choices.
