I have three questions, im new to OS-X so just trying to fixa few things I have run across, thanks in advance.

1. How do I enable fast user switching. I have an account on my mini and my wife does. Now I have to log out and she can log in, how do we enable the rotating cube, fast user switching?

2. Also, in .mac mail. I have to go to the top and hit the drop down "mailbox" heading to go between my inbox,sent items, outbox etc. Is there a way to have a menu on the left side, so I can see all my mailboxes all the time? or toggle tru them with out going to the top and selecting each one.

Last Q:
3. On Safari, How do I instantly go back to my home page. On I.E you hit the home icon, but in safari I cant seem to get back to my startpage/hompage.


thanks guys/gals

ANS: When logged in as an Admin User, Open the Accounts pane of System preferences, click Login Options at the bottom, check the 'Enable fast user Switching" box

2. Also, in .mac mail. I have to go to the top and hit the drop down "mailbox" heading to go between my inbox,sent items, outbox etc. Is there a way to have a menu on the left side, so I can see all my mailboxes all the time? or toggle tru them with out going to the top and selecting each one.

ANS: Click on the 'Mailboxes' icon in the toolbar OR select 'Show mailboxes" in the View menu

ANS: There should be a Home icon. Select the View menu and check that the Address bar is checked and that 'Home' is checked. It is the third item in the list.
