New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Send Article to a Friend

Solitaire card games have long been a mainstay of computer gaming, especially for those who don't care for blood-and-guts first-person shooters. If you're looking for an implementation of Solitaire for the Mac, it's worth giving dogMelon's Classic Solitaire a try, since it includes cards with professionally designed graphics, 20 different Solitaire games and, most important for those of us who have never even heard of games like Idiot's Delight and La Grande Imperiale, an explanation of the rules for each in the online help.
