Author Biography

Agen Schmitz is a freelance writer and editor with a lot of Amazon time under his belt. After leaving Amazon in 2003 (as senior editor for the Camera & Photo store), Agen has written for the Amazon Electronics Store blog (mainly covering Apple news) and created product content for a variety of Amazon categories — from PCs to comforter sets to luxury watches. He lives in Seattle with his wife and son (who likes to think his father’s iPad is his own). (January 2012)

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."
