When I browse my hard disk under OS9, and I open a new folder the old folder remains. There can be dozens of windows open by the time I find what I am looking for.

How can I open a new folder and close the old one at the same time?
(can it be done?)

Hold down your option key when double clicking through folders.

&nbsp; &nbsp; <font color = green>or</font>

Launch your Script Editor and paste the AppleScript code below into it. &nbsp; Then, compile the script as an application and set it to a Hot Key or put an alias in your Apple Menu.

tell application "Finder"
&nbsp; &nbsp; close (every window whose index is not 1)
end tell

<font color = blue>Tom</font>

This is perfect. (Both solutions!) And this is much more than I expected.

Thank you very much!
