This is on Tiger:
If that blows your mind, try this: hold Shift while minimizing or maximizing a window.
Do this to a movie playing in QuickTime 7 - even cooler.
Oh my goodness, that wasn't cool at all. That was frightening. Why on earth would anyone want their screen to look like that? It was like looking at old color film negatives,
It's for the visually impaired. Just another nice touch that Apple puts in.
I like the zoom feature. I live on a Windows campus, and the profs are regularly hooking their school provided tablet PCs (the university here is probably the largest Tablet PC buyers, since we have at least a dozen in the Comp Sci dept alone). The other day, one of the profs got frustrated because the screen was too small and she said, "I just wish I could magnify this section of the screen here so you can see what I'm talking about."
It was all I could do not to laugh and shout, "Get a Mac!"
Wow, that was pretty neat.
Although, I like the holding shift and minimizing/maximizing a window better.
Thanks for the cool tricks!
Hah, don't you love it?!
I always use the phrase, "Well, if this was a Mac..."
Sometimes certain color combinations are hard to read and also some people have trouble with off-white on white and such, and the negative helps a little.
hmm, interesting - but i didn't notice anything with the shift-min/max thing
what's it supposed to do?
it makes it in slow motion
whoa...go look at mad jew's signature without this thing on and then put it on
Shift + min/max is supposed to make it go slowly. By min/max we mean to the dock, the yellow button, not the green, just in case that is what you were trying.
The shift trick also works with Exposé.
"What is next?"
Both tricks...at the same time!!!
Windows actually does have a magnifier built-in. Start>Programs>Accessories>Accessibility>Magnifier. Just so you know.
Interestingly enough using the ctrl-alt-cmd-8 on my PB gives me a black and white screen whereas when I do that on the PM's at Uni, the screen has reversed colour, not straight B&W.
If its not Tiger, I think you have do to fn-ctrl-alt-cmd-8
And the slow motion also works when activating dashboard..
..woo look how slow it moves!
Although my XP using friends comment was "What the hell is the point of that, just more useless eye candy that slows everything else down.."
Sigh. Will they ever learn?!
Just tried it and nope the fn key does not create a inverse coloured screen.
this is SO cool\
im staying like this
Mr. Brightside using a black screen...oh, the irony!
How do you zoom?
(yes, I know i'm stoopid)
Hold down COMMAND and + to zoom in, COMMAND and - to zoom out.
I don't see anything in inverse. Only when I highlight it.
And if you need to turn it on it's in System Preferences->Universal Access->Zoom. (I believe it's turned off by default).
