Kinda new to my MBP w/ Lion installed. I'm wondering if there is a setting one can chose to completely close an application when the red dot is clicked. Right now they are still appearing to be loaded into memroy (guessing that is what is happening as the Dock shows a little white dot by the app's icon, and so you have to rt click it and choose quit.
Also, what's the easiest ways to do screen prints, which I so often in the Windows world w/ the print screen key on the Win keyboard. I really miss the print screen and HOME/END buttons on the Windows keyboard design. Perhaps they are on larger MBP's as mine's a 13".
Thank you kindly in advance,
Very user friendly, just badly explained I think.
I also think the resulting output is much easier to deal with than the Windows way, (unless they've changed it). Here's a better explanation; If you have a trackpad, (magic or built in), it'd be demonstrated much more easily if you enable draglock, (System Preferences>Universal Access>Mouse & Trackpad>Trackpad Options>Dragging - With Drag Lock), as per the below image.
Now, assuming you know how drag lock works, press ⌘↑4 for the crosshairs. Tap and then quickly tap and hold and drag out a small rectangle, the cursor should now remian on screen whilst you remove your hand from the trackpad.
1. Shift, and move the crosshairs around. You may notice it locks either the height or width of the rectangle you dragged, (depending on which direction you move the mouse next).
2. Option, this one, I haven't figured out how to describe easily, give it a go.
3. Space, and move the crosshairs around. You may notice it locks the size of the rectangle you dragged out and enables it to be moved to different areas.
Usually the image appears as a .png file on your desktop but this format and save location can be changed.
