Thread: Graphics settings in os x
03-04-2005, 10:38 PM #1mac_noobieGuestGraphics settings in os x
I switched to mac over last summer from a dell... In windows I used to be able to right click on an Nvidia icon in my task bar and change simple settings like anti-antializing, and picture contrast and certain stuff. On my pb (12") I can't find any options to customize my graphics card's settings...

The settings are in System Preferences, in the Displays and Appearance tabs. Contrast and gamma settings are in the calibration tab of Displays.
These are OS-level settings; there is no direct control over graphics card driver settings in OS X.

That hardly stinks. If I needed to right mouse click on the desktop to get to my settings then I would need a two button mouse.
Besides, how often do you need to set your graphic card settings? I think it is brilliant to keep everything under the System Preferences thing...it is easier to get to than Control Panel. One click you're in. Control Panel you need to go to start, control panel, etc. Anyway I digress.
