    Check this out. PopClip. Gives you that IOS like cut, copy, paste, etc popup bar when you select stuff on your Mac. I normally use keyboard shortcuts but this thing is kinda handy.

    Tom :)macwave:... wish I'd thought of it!)

    Sorry, Tom...it's a "Windows" thing :)

    From the Windows website...
    "Snap is a quick (and fun) new way to resize open windows, simply by dragging them to the edges of your screen.

    Depending on where you drag a window, you can make it expand vertically, take up the entire screen, or appear side-by-side with another window. Snap makes reading, organizing, and comparing windows a...well, you get the picture."


    So for example, if I wanted to view two windows side by side on my screen I'd simply have to drag one to the right and one to the left and they would "snap" to equal width and length on my screen automatically.

    It's not a "must have" but it's one of the few things I miss about my pc....

    Ahh... that Snap!

    Ok, here's several options from the Mac App store:


    If none of those look right, let me know. There are others.
