Poll Preview: System Shiftin' -- Many people expect Apple to release a minor update to Mac OS 9.0 in the near future, which provides all the excuse we need to ask a simple question basic to all Macintosh owners: What version of the Mac OS do you use on your primary Macintosh? If you're among the folks not running the Mac OS on your main Mac, you'll have to sit this one out, and if you have several Macs that you consider "primary" (a desktop Mac and a PowerBook, for instance) you'll need to choose one as more "primary" than the others. So come one, come all, and tell us which version of the Mac OS you're using by voting on our home page. [ACE]
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.
