    I know it's something simple for folks who use one, but for me this was a big deal. I just hit ctrl+apple and then clicked. I figured out how to right click on a single button mouse and then set as a background and it was pretty intuitive to do so!

    Also, in the desktop appearances, I found out that when you select a background, just clicking on it one time changes the whole background instantly. In Windows XP, you have to wait for it to change the configuration which can take 5-10 seconds. How fecking easy is that?!

    I'm using a G4, an old G4 running 450 Mhz with 1 GB RAM and this thing is smoking my pentium 3 with a gig of RAM. I'm just floored so far how easy Mac's are...Damn you Microsoft for 12 wasted years of computing...

    Yes, it's quite nice. In time you will only learn more little niceties like that. :)

    So Master Obi-Wan, Windows is the path of the dark side, but Mac's are the good side of the Force? :cool:

    You can also select a whole folder of pictures and have them scroll through as your desktop background in regular intervals.
