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."

Rating:

8 Penguins out of a possible 10

Summary: -- AccessPC is a single purpose utility that sits in the background and allows you to mount MS-DOS disks on the Macintosh desktop (assuming of course, that you have a drive that can read and write MS-DOS disks). AccessPC is about as transparent as possible and is much faster than DOS Mounter 1.0. You even get the extra bonus of being able to mount SoftPC hard disk documents as volumes, which makes for much easier transfer of files in and out.
