Probably a straight forward one but I cannot seem to work this out.

In the binder I have multiple folders (which I have open) I would like to collapse them all in one go rather than go through and close each one and manually.

Is this possible?

Thank You.

I find the keyboard best for expanding/collapsing multiple folders. If you select the ones you want to expand first, then simply use the left or right arrow keys to collapse/expand, respectively. With the addition of the Option key modifier, this action takes place on all subgroups within the selection as well.

In addition, for absolute expansion and contraction, see View ▸ Outline ▸ Expand All and ... ▸ Collapse All, along with their associated shortcuts.
