Hi Folks - I'm looking for some tips and tricks. I started using a Mac about 7 months ago. I've got to say, after years of hearing all the hype . . . I'm pretty underwhelmed. It's not that I hate it, but frankly, there's nothing about it that, FOR ME, lives up to the hype. ("it just works" and spyware, viruses, malware agruments don't hold sway with me -- I've never had a problem with my Windows machines and I've never had a problem with my Mac). In any event, I'm not trying to turn this into a debate of "My Dad is bigger than your Dad." Instead I have a few questions about managing open windows. There are a couple of things I really haven't really gotten used to and dislike in OSx and was wondering if folks had some tips or tricks for me: 1. I absolutely hate that I can only resize a window in the bottom right corner. 2. It drives me nuts that when I click the window maximize button, the window may or may not fill my entire screen. If it doesn't fill the entire screen then I have to resize in the bottom right corner. UGH! 3. I find it very disorienting that the menu for all windows stays at the top of the screen rather than being part of the open window. 4. Finally, when I minimize a window, is there a way to stop the animation sequence showing the open window getting "sucked" into the tool bar. I personally find it very annoying. I know these are may be minor quibbles for some, and I thought at first it was just a matter of me getting used to things. But I must say that 7 months later, they remain annoyances. So if folks know of any settings I can change or third party add-ons I can use, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
