    Here's something most people probably don't know....

    [​IMG]

    notice the app icons in the bar

    open app folder, drag app to toolbar right to the left side of the search bar until the "+" sign appears.

    You can now drag files straight to there instead of to the dock

    Post your tricks.
     
  2. I didn't know that one. It works with folders too! :eek3:

    ctrl+option+command+8
    :mamoru:

    ok, if you need to rearrange the icons up by the clock, you hold down command and drag the icons around. if you want to remove one, drag it to the trash

    i use command+shift+c all the time to bring up the hard drive so that i can access my network shares

    not really tricks, but nice to know

    Holding down SHIFT while scrolling in a webpage will give you horizontal scrolling.

    It has to be a page that requires horizontal scrolling to view. Like a desktop thread.

    Yes.

    cmd + shift + 4 gives you a crop tool to select what you take a screenshot of

    And installing Snapz Pro gives you even more control. ;)

    What kind of food do you want?
    Have you been here before? What are you looking to do? Clubs/ bars or like the aquarium / coke museum?


    Strip is overpriced and not that good IMO

    I dunno if you've checked the Apple store lately. But they've updated it with desktop models too.

    but don't most come with a mighty mouse with an all axis scroll ball?

    I see, this is only for scroll wheel mice.
