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

This is important! The refund for MODE32 from Apple ends on 31-Dec-91, so if you haven't sent in for your $100 refund, you should send your original disk to Apple at the following address. If you wait too long, too bad on you. You could return the disk, get your refund and buy a share or two of Apple stock. That way you can continue supporting Apple without passing up your $100.
