Hi - Im a new mac user. 2 questions:

1. When browsing the internet using safari, images are automatically resized to fit the browser window. You are then given the option to zoom to the full image size. How do I turn the resizing off? I do not want images to automatically resize to fit the window.

2. Are there shortcut keys to automatically switch between safari sessions? If I have 4 open, are there keys that I can press to toggle between them? Command-Tab toggles between applications, but not safari sessions..

Thanks

Hey chilli welcome ... The resizing has passed me by atm cant for the life of me pick it out of the ole grey matter ...
But to toggle the tabs use this shortcut ..

cmd~shift~L/R Arrow

And for a full list of Safari shortcuts have a look HERE.
Worth copying and making a sticky on your desktop until you get accustomed to them

Hope it helps and someone will chime in with the resizing

Enjoy your new Mac

Cheers

EDIT : have a look at SafariGaurdian, as this might help with resizing ...

Hi There, You will learn to LOVE Safari. Try CMD and + and CMD and - that should do the trick. FYI, A ton of great safari Plug ins out there. Click to Flash one of the best! I will try to Find some links for ya in the AM Getting Late.

Works for me. I can switch between windows of the same application that way.

I can't help you with the image resizing thing. It looks as if there is no option to change this in Safari unless it's part of a plugin (I don't see it in Glims).
