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.

Vote for TidBITS in 4th Best of the Mac Web Survey! From today, 14-Oct-02, through Tuesday, 22-Oct-02, the Low End Mac Web site is running the latest installment of their semi-annual popularity contest for Macintosh news and information Web sites. Last time we ranked 3rd in user rankings and 12th in overall votes; I'd love to see those numbers climb this year. So please take a moment and help the TidBITS PR cause with a vote, but make sure to rank your other favorite Mac sites too. This time around, Low End Mac broke the list of 100 sites into 4 pages of 25 sites each, so TidBITS is in the Group D list, linked directly below. [ACE]
