Spin Through Toolbar View Options

Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.

But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.

Send Article to a Friend

Power Mac Netscape 2.0 Java Beta 1 -- On the heels of its official release of Netscape 2.0 for the Macintosh, Netscape has posted the first beta of a Java-enabled version of Netscape Navigator 2.0 for Power Macs. The Java implementation is compatible with the Java Development Kit released by Sun last week, and (unlike other Java-capable versions of Navigator) cannot be disabled via Netscape's preferences. This beta expires 15-Mar-96 and is a little over 2 MB in size. [GD]
