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.

Cannot get the install to work - message:

Database Daemon and Synchservices agent can't be closed.

Stonewall. Is this a known problem ?

I'm running under OSX 10.7.5

Have you tried restarting before doing the install? Or even booting in Safe Mode (hold down the Shift key at boot) before doing the install? That should prevent these background from launching at all.

10.2.5 hangs when it gets to Installation. Tried it twice, no luck. Started from reboot, still the same problem. Cannot find anywhere to report this. Microsoft like all companies these days do not care, and do not want to know about problems
