A user posted in a reply that the article I linked to showed to hold Ctrl instead of Command.

However, since I have a Mac, the instructions needed to be a little different. It is "Command" rather than "Control" that would have needed to be clicked.

I'm not on a Mac, so can't verify this, but I assume that the OP is correct in this. I don't know if this article is still maintained.

Did you post the wrong question? /questions/1091431 is from a Windows 7 user about browser window size.

This article uses [[T:contextmenu]] on the folder

Template:contextmenu /kb/Template%3Acontextmenu is

{for win,linux}Right-click{/for}{for mac}Hold down the {key Ctrl} key while you click{/for}

The article about sorting bookmarks uses this markup:

  1. {for win,linux}Right-click{/for}{for mac}Hold down the {key Ctrl} key while you click{/for} on the folder you want to sort, then select {menu Sort By Name}.

I just checked on my husband's iMac (OS X 10.6.8) and Control-Click is correct.
