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.

Thank you! I could have used this earlier this evening, I used 40 minutes trying to find the friggin Weather app for iPad!! *
Sometimes I get fed up with Apple, sorry. Another example is swiping down on home screens to get search. But not *telling* the user so at any time!

*The upside is that I found half a dozen fun looking weather apps amongst the *hundreds* of them in the app store.
