Add a group of files to a new folder in MacOS

September 8, 2021 , I learned...

I love happy accidents. In this case, my finger slipped on the keyboard when trying to create a new folder on my MacOS desktop (you know, CMD + Shift + N). That’s what I normally type when I want a new folder for a group of files.

Somehow, my middle finger slid off the Shift key and pressed the Control key instead. That apparently creates a new folder and automatically drops any selected files in it.

Just another one of those dumb little things that everyone probably already knows and I luckily stumbled into.
