Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

 
 

MacBook Pro Retina SMC Update 1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has issued MacBook Pro Retina SMC Update v1.1, which provides a fix for a “rare issue” for slow frame rates while playing graphics-intensive games on the 15-inch model of the MacBook Pro with Retina display. The System Management Controller update also provides bug fixes for Power Nap and wake from sleep, as well as a fix for a fan control issue. While the latter isn’t detailed in the release notes, it most likely addresses the overzealous fan spinning that’s been discussed at great length on Apple’s support forums and noted at Geek.com. After installing, the SMC will be updated to version 2.3f35. (Free, 504 KB)
