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.

Feed the Hungry While Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner -- Thanksgiving is all about family and food, and to help those who may not have either, we'll be donating $1 from the sale of each copy of Joe Kissell's "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" during the month of November to the San Francisco Food Bank, a non-profit organization (where Joe has volunteered) whose mission is to end hunger in San Francisco.

If you've read one of Joe's books, you know he's great at helping you successfully work through complex computer tasks like installing Mac OS X or creating a solid backup scheme. He also did an amazing job with writing about the entire process of planning and preparing a Thanksgiving dinner, and honestly, given all the editing, testing, and internal linking, we think "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" is one of our best titles ever. You can buy the book in our usual electronic format for only $5 this week, during our 50 percent-off anniversary sale, but if you think you'll need a printed copy in the kitchen, you can buy it that way too for $19.99.
