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.

 
 

Poll Results: Apple of Your iFuture?

Poll Results: Apple of Your iFuture? Although many Macworld Expo attendees were expecting Steve Jobs to make hardware announcements (even the attendees not swayed by rumor sites), the major news turned out to be Apple's suite of new Internet services such as iTools and iCards. Despite the undeniable fact that Apple's new Internet services certainly aren't perfect (and we'll be looking at more of the concerns in a future issue), we've been impressed with their overall design and integration. So when we asked, "Do you plan to use any of Apple's new Internet services?" we weren't surprised to see that 82 percent of respondents answered yes. Apple has grabbed the interest of a lot of people with these Internet tools; let's hope they continue to polish the existing tools and offer new ones as well. [JLC]
