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.

Virtual PC 2.0 Gains Speed, Better Interoperability -- Connectix is shipping Virtual PC 2.0, a software-based Pentium emulator that enables users to run operating systems and applications based on the Intel architecture, including Windows, MS-DOS, and NeXTstep. According to Connectix, Virtual PC 2.0 increases performance by up to 40 percent over Virtual PC 1.0 (see "Virtual PC: Slow But Well Worth the Wait" in TidBITS-397), adds drag & drop file transfer, and provides copy and paste between Mac and PC applications. PC gamers with fast Macs (G3 recommended) can take advantage of Virtual PC's built-in support for Microsoft DirectX technology, which includes graphics, stereo sound, and joystick support. Virtual PC 2.0 is expected to sell for $145 for the Windows 95 version, $49 for the PC-DOS version. Upgrades from Virtual PC 1.0 cost about $35. [JLC]
