    Hi All,

    I've had my 15" PB for a week now, and i am loving this machine. It actually works, and does what apple sais it does... so far so good.

    But i have two questions left.

    First
    When i open the finder, it always with those big icons, and i much rather have the little names with the tree structure, but i can't find an option to set this. That every time i open the finder, it opens with the little icons and tree structure
    (hope this is clear)

    Second
    Once in a store, i played around with a mac (can't remember which one, with what OS) but i think i remember, that the dock used about 80% of the width of the screen. And although it contained more icons than showed, it didn't grow any bigger, instead, there were arrows on the edges where one could rotate the content of the dock.
    Is this an illusion of my memory, or is (was) there actually such a feature, since im not able to find it.
    (again, hope this is clear, it isn't simple describing GUI features)

    Thanks in advance for any answers.

    And got to say, it's great to own a mac

    re: question 1. on the Finder, click "show view options".

    re: question 2. i think u mean, the dock "magnification".

    try clicking the "apple menu" (upper left icon) then choose "dock".

    hope this helps. nice to know u like your mac.

    Great, the first one hit the spot....

    Thanks

    Nope, i've seen the magnification, although it looks kinda nifty, it's not what im looking for.

    It was like the dock was taped to a round wheel, and as a user you were only looking to one side of that wheel. But by holding your mouse arrow to an edge of the dock it would turn round, like if the wheel was spinning.

    .... sigh... it isn't easy to explain.... maybe it's my memory

    But thanks for the first one

    I understand what you're saying about the dock.

    <- 01234 ->

    where to access numbers 5-9 you'd have to press the -> arrow (numbers being aliases). I haven't come across this but you might want to check www.versiontracker.com
