    Hi to all,

    do you know anyway to make bigger the three buttons (red, yellow and green) of the upper-left corner of the finder windows?

    Unfortunately, that isn't technically possible right now. However, it is one of the rumored features in Leopard.

    Here is an attached artfile.bin that contains the Snow Leopard titlebar controls i.e. The traffic lights

    Back up your own artfile.bin first. It is located here: "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Resources". I put an alias to the resources folder in the zip file to make it easier to find

    Put the downloaded artfile.bin in its place. Log out to apply the change.

    This artfile only has the traffic lights modified. Everything else is from 10.9.

    This will not work on a retina Macbook. Those models of Mac use a file called artfile200.bin instead.

    Thanks you for this.

    Just applied it and I am rather pleased now the traffic lights are nice and big :)

    good work
