    Hullo all,

    Sorry, but I have another 2 questions, if any one would please be so kind as to answer.

    Firstly, as a recently switched PC owner I cannot stop double clicking in the title/drag bar to maximise the window. Is there any way I can make it so such a thing happens?

    And also the top part of the screen, next to the clock (I don't even know whwta it is called) how can I put things there? For instance I am always using alt, comand and D. Could I make an icon in the clock space which would do the same thing?

    ta

    Windows don't maximize to fill the screen in Mac OS X the way they do in Windows.
    It's called the Menu Bar.
    Not that I know of.

    I'm not aware of any software that makes double-clicking a title bar maximize the window, but Cinch is a great app that works just like Windows 7's Snap feature. Just drag a window to the top of the screen, and it maximizes. Drag it away, and it automatically snaps back to its previous size.

    contains the built-in functions for displaying in the Menu Bar. Open the folder, and double-click on an item. They don't all seem to work, but I can get some to appear in the Menu Bar. To remove an item, control-click on it and drag it off the menu bar. It will vanish in a "puff of smoke". I don't know of a way to customize items for the Menu Bar.
