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.

Riven Arrival -- Myst, a CD-ROM-based adventure game created by Cyan, is known for its fantastical images and immersive play. In 1993, Myst took the computer world by storm and continues to enjoy a record-breaking run on PC Data's top ten best-seller list for software games, with more than 3.5 million copies sold. Now, with the release of Myst's sequel, Riven, we'll find out if lightning can strike twice. Last week, amidst a good amount of mainstream media coverage, the Red Orb Entertainment Division of Broderbund Software released Riven, the Sequel to Myst, as a five-CD set. Riven includes 4,000 images, three hours of animation, plus two hours' worth of sound. To experience Riven, you'll need at least a 90 MHz PowerPC-based machine, 9 MB free RAM, 65 MB hard disk space, System 7.5, color monitor, and a quad-speed CD-ROM drive.

If you plan to be an early adopter of Riven, note that there's already an update available. Riven Updater 1.01, a 732K download, clears up problems with rotating domes and turning on the light near the water at the end of a tunnel. It also clears up problems where movies play in the wrong location. [TJE]
