Avoid Long Hierarchical Menus

If you right-click (or Control-click) on some item, such as a file in the Finder, and one of the sub-menus has many options (Open With is a frequent culprit), it may take several seconds to open, even on a fast machine, which is annoying if you did not actually want that sub-menu.

The trick is to not pull the cursor through the menu, but in a curve around it, so the cursor does not touch any menu items until lower on the list where you wanted to go.

MSN to Offer TCP Services, Mac Client?

Send Article to a Friend

MSN to Offer TCP Services, Mac Client? Bill Miller, director of marketing and business development for Microsoft Network (MSN), said Thursday that MSN will offer direct TCP/IP connections in the first half of 1996 on a city-by-city basis for a fixed subscription rate. Miller also said that MSN will be available to Macintosh users a year after MSN's introduction on 24-Aug-95. Time will tell, but I wouldn't be surprised if these statements were only half true.
