10.3: Menu Bar Item Modification?
Authored by: Telluride on Nov 07, '03 03:17:36PM

Anyone know if its possible to just change the Fast User Switching Menu Item from your current username to just a small icon? I like fast user switching, but haven't really used it that much mainly because it takes up WAY to much menubar real-estate. I'm sure it is possible to change somehow, but looking at the plist file hasn't enlightened me yet.

In NetInfo Manager change everyones "realname" to be a symbol character, like the artist formerly not called Prince. ;) For kicks I tried it and it works. Now just have to remember who is the airplane, who is the pair of scissors, who is the cross,....

--- What?

In Tiger, just go to Accounts in System Preferences, and click on "Login Options" (look for the house icon on the left side). You'll then see an "Enable Fast User Switching" option; below it is a "View as" pop-up menu. Choose "Icon."

Not sure if this is available under Panther or not?
