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

Prosoft Engineering has released Data Rescue 3.2, a significant update to its data recovery software for Mac OS X. The new release includes support for recovering files produced by several new Mac applications, including Microsoft Office 2011, AutoCAD 2010/2011, OpenOffice, QuickBooks 2006 through 2011, and iWork ’05 through ’08. The update can also now find lost AppleScripts, encrypted sparse disk images, Java archives, X3F and MRW raw images, and many more. Other improvements include folder-specific searches, warnings of possible drive failure, new HTML help, improved search performance, and more; see the release notes for a full list. A free trial version of the software can scan for lost files but can only recover a single file of less than 10 MB of size. ($99 new, free update, 13.2 MB)
