A simple but effective Mac speed-up tip
Authored by: kyngchaos on Nov 23, '05 08:46:56AM

I recently moved to using the full 128px icon size - gotta have the full effect of my cute Sumomo HD icon ^_^ I never was much for too many things on my desktop, but this keeps me on my toes.

Does this hint apply to Panther AND Tiger? There are people where I work (all Panther Macs) that use the desktop as a convenient dumping ground, and this would be a good hint for them.

And a realted hint - the default download folder for Safari, and often for other internet apps, is the Desktop. Create a download folder off the Desktop and set it in Safari. Keeps things tidy, especially in light of this hint.

I can't comment on the speed gains, but Panther does have a separate window for each Desktop Icon.
