Is single-clicking that much more intuitive to perform this specific

I've grown extremely fond of the Mac paradigm, in which a single click selects
the item (or adds it to a growing selection list) for a future operation and a
double click opens the item (regardless of item type -- an application, a data
file, a folder, an entry in a dialog list, etc.). I'm interested in how you
would perform tasks that normally require first selecting an item (copying a
group of files to another disc, changing the properties, finding out its
current properties, duplicating a file, making an alias, etc.) in an interface
in which a single click opens the icon. Would you have to make a menu selection
for the operation first, then pick items from a list?

Have fun,
