If I press commandi on a file in Finder it brings up one window with details about that file.

If I do the same with 50 files, Finder opens one window.

But if I select 10 files and press press commandi I get 10 windows.

How do I tell my computer to always open one 'Get Info' window, regardless of how many files are selected?

option+command+i Will open only one "Get Info" Window in Finder and that window will display only the currently selected Finder item. Selecting a different item will display that new item's info in that already opened "Get Info" window.

If you have 10 Finder items selected, the 1 "Get Info" window will show basic info on the 10 selected items.
