YELLOW MINIMIZE BUTTON TOO SMALL? TRY THIS!

Sometimes hitting that tiny middle yellow button (to minimize your current window to the Dock) is tricky, especially if you're using a Titanium PowerBook or Cinema Display set at its native resolution, in which everything is smaller than a gnat's nose. If you'd like something bigger to aim at than that tiny yellow button, go under the Apple menu, under System Preferences, and click on the Appearance icon, and then click on the checkbox for Minimize When Double Clicking a Window Title Bar. Now you can just double-click anywhere on the window's title bar and that window will immediately minimize to the Dock, just as if you had clicked the tiny yellow button. Of course, you could skip the clicking altogether and press Command-M (depending on your application), but that just seems like cheating, doesn't it?
