10.5: Remove the 'downloaded file' warning flag
Authored by: mmell on Oct 02, '11 10:51:13AM

It's Vista-like to let the user disable this annoying behavior.

Here is a simple line to remove the quarantine flag from the contents of a directory:
[code]xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/target/*.* [/code]

It only works on files with extensons. You can paste the first part into Terminal and then drag your target into the Terminal window.
