    On my Macbook Pro, (which I just got) whenever I minimized any window it goes down really cool. Like a vertex something. Yeah, that's the best way I can describe it. Now, it's going down just regular and boxy, and I don't know what I did. I don't have any idea how I changed the settings, but I can't get them back. I've looked in the system preferences, Safari prefs, etc. Help.

    System Settings->Dock

    Set the "Minimize using" box to Genie Effect.

    D'oh... too slow.

    System Preferences, Dock, Minimize using: and then pick Genie. That's... default...

    You've switched from the genie minimize effect to the scale effect. You can switch it back under the Dock pane in System Preferences.

    I was responding because I've never seen this effect the OP describes as making the Window minimise like an angular point of a polygon or polyhedron or other figure. :p

    Just kidding.

    System preferences -> dock -> genie effect.

    No.... if you want slow, hold the shift key down when you "minimize" the window. Also when you "unminimize" it...

    I enjoy it too.

    Works for a bunch of different things, you won't break anything if you hold the shift key down while trying things. I least I don't think you'll break anything.... :)

    I wish:eek::(! But I'm one of those "People who make the iPod geeks". I hated middle school, and I think I'm going to hate high school to.
