Invert the scroll-wheel volume adjustment in iTunes Apps
If you hold down shift while moving your mouse's scroll-wheel in an iTunes window, the volume slider will move up when you scroll down (and vice versa), and not as expected. Weird, huh?

[robg adds: We covered the "normal" behavior of the slider via scroll wheel in this hint. iTunes must be the foreground app for this trick to work, and the behavior differs by window size. If you have the iTunes window in its most-shrunken state, the mouse just has to be over the window somewhere. If you use a larger iTunes window, you'll need to put the mouse directly over the volume slider to make this work.]

The scrolling volume control works as expected on my PowerBook G4. Two-finger scrolling downward (toward me) or to the left turns the volume down and upward (away from me) or to the right turns the volume up. The shift key has no effect. The pointer does have to be over the volume slider, though.

Two finger scrolling on a powerbook (mines only using iScroll II, so don't know about the USB based ones) isn't affected by shift. Really narks me when you goto hold shift to scroll sideways and it doesn't work.

Same here using a Mighty Mouse on a iMac G5 with 10.4.6: SHIFT has no effect.

Cheers

Holding shift and scrolling over the library area causes it to scroll horizontally. Pretty handy for me!
