In Windows, when you start explorer, there will be a tree view on left side. After selecting a specific folder / drive when you press *, it will expand all to depth.

I want to do the same in Xcode - after selecting a particular group in Xcode Project, I want to fully expand it.

Is this possible?

The Mac OS X equivalent for expanding a complete tree view is:

Option-Right Arrow

Condensing it all is:

Option-Left Arrow

Using Left and Right arrow on their own will only do it for the selected directory and not any child directories.

Apart from the answer by Chealion, you can also option-klik to fully expand or contract subtrees. The same as in the Mac Finder, basically.
