    If you like good browser goood e-mail client and have an AIM account, you're gonna drag 'em right back. Congratz though! Best program switching = Expose, F9

    To Rename files you either Left click on the name and it will turn highlighted and then you can type in the new name or right click and click Get Info. You can change the name both ways. I think the Print Screen is the SHIFT, Apple Key 3. That takes a full screen shot and saves it to the desktop as a PDF. If you want a JPG open it in Preview and then export it and tell it the filetype. If you want to define the area you want to capture hit SHIFT-APPLE-4 and you can select the area you want captured. Shift-Apple-5 does another Capture for I never have used it and forget what it is.

    OS X.3 has a wide range of options for taking screenshots. I always manage to forget what they are, so I am listing them here for reference.

    Screen to file : Shift-APPLE-3

    Screen to clipboard : Ctrl-Shift-APPLE-3

    Crosshair screen selection to file : Shift-APPLE-4

    Crosshair screen selection to clipboard : Ctrl-Shift-APPLE-4

    Window to file : Spacebar after Shift-APPLE-4 []
