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."

 
 

Poll Results: Color Me Pretty

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: Color Me Pretty -- In last week's poll we asked what colors you'd like to see Apple use in future Macs. Brushed metal came in as the most popular choice, scoring 27 percent of the vote. Midnight blue took second, with 18 percent, and forest green and ebony slid in ahead of the pack with 11 percent each. The next step is to wait for the next color change and see what Apple has up its sleeve. Note that you can see the final poll results at the GetBITS URL below. [ACE]
