Tinkering Around

Like with every operating system, there are things you want to do, but just can't with the current version. That's where third-party programs and utilities come in to do the job. TinkerTool provides access to several secret Mac OS X Panther features that were either not made available to the average user or available only for development purposes. TinkerTool is a free utility that allows you to add a drop shadow to your Dock, change the minimize effect, control placement of scroll bars, and substitute fonts throughout the sys-tem (dialogs, title bars, menu bars, and help balloons, etc.) to name a few. The changes you make with TinkerTool only apply to the current user and don't affect the settings of other users on a shared computer. If you're not satisfied with the changes, you can use the Reset panel to restore your system back to the way it was before you started making changes. You can download the utility application from www.downloads.com or other similar Web sites; so check it out!
