Mac 101: Scroll wheel and new switchers

15May07

The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) shows four tips on how to use your mouse with scroll wheel with your Mac. With the scroll wheel you can make your screen zoom in or out (control + scroll wheel) or scrolling horizontally on apps like Preview by holding down the shift key while scrolling the wheel up or down. Check out Four Fun Scroll Wheel tips at TUAW.

In the meantime, Macinstruct has their Indispensible Tips to New Mac Users, a set of tips aimed at those were Windows users who decided to switch to the Mac. The tips cover Exposé (you really need to know this, newbies), spring-loaded folders, customizing the Finder window toolbar, cleaning your desktop of icon clutter, and others. Macinstruct is a good source for Mac newbies as well as for advanced users. So check out their other how-to’s and guides.

Last but not the least, for those advanced users out there who likes using Quicksilver, Coffee blog, has a tip that mashes up Quicksilver with your Mac’s active screen corners. Haven’t tried this myself but looks like one cool hack. Unlike the author, I’m a proponent of knowing how to navigate using just the keyboard.

That’s it for now. I’ll be writing something explosive in the next few days, and it’s not because I ate a lot of fajitas and enchiladas.
