Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.

That wasn't the actual iTunes window, it was just a widget. It's called Menuet (http://specere.net/index.php).

The icon is payware, so I can't release. Sorry. :(

thanks for the link buddy.

about the icon - at least you can tell me the name of the icon, its creator, etc. so perhaps i can consider purchasing it...? thanks!

For so long I've wanted to get rid of the menu bar, and now that I can (using menufela) I'm not sure if I like it.

The menubar is essential to doing tasks...

Aptmunich
09-08-2006, 10:24 AM
Not if you know the keyboard commands :)

Menufela, I'll have to remember that...

bruvone
09-08-2006, 11:31 AM
Menufela just hides the menubar. It works the same way as hiding the dock, so if I put the cursor at the top of the screen it comes back.

Strider
09-08-2006, 12:52 PM
if there is limited screen real estate, it could be useful to hide the menu bar.

shift+command+3 takes a screenshot
shift+command+4 is to capture a part of your screen

there is also an screencapture app called Grab which is hiding in the Utilities folder.

All pics are saved to desktop.

You can also try shift+command+4+spacebar..

A camera icon appears and with it..you can simply take a shot of your desktop..it ignores the icons..even for an entire webpage just selects the webpage, or move it to your dock and selects just the dock instantly.. love it!
