Make Mail App in Lion look like it did in Snow Leopard

One of the biggest changes that Apple has implemented in Mac OS X Lion is Mail version 5.0. The new version of Mail has a whole new look and feel to it that I’ve heard a few of you complain about. Well good news this tip will show you how to reverse the new modern look that Mail is sporting these days into something a bit more classical.

  1. If you haven’t already launch Mail on your Mac running OS X Lion.
  2. Open the preferences pane for Mail by selecting Preferences from the Mail menu or by pressing the Command key plus the comma key at the same time.
  3. Select the Viewing tab in the preferences window that opens.
  4. Click Use classic layout.

Mail will now change how its window is configured from the new modern look introduced in Mail 5.0 to one that looks a bit more classical like it did in Mail 4.0.

If you like you can tweak the classical look by selecting several sub-options under the Use classic layout. You can decide whether or not you want to show To/Cc labels, contact photos in the message list, or how many lines of a message you want to show in preview (the default is 2).

If you decide to change these sub-options you’ll have to do so without having the Use classic layout box checked, because if that option is checked these sub-options are grayed out. Personally I think that is a bug in the Mail application, but for now this work around will get you past that.

How to reveal the Dock in Lion’s fullscreen apps

MacWorld has published a nice little tip that allows Lion users to reveal the Dock while in fullscreen apps. To do so, while in any fullscreen app, simply move the pointer all the way to the edge where the Dock is pinned. Once your cursor is resting on that edge of the screen, swipe or move the mouse in that same direction again, as if you were trying to move beyond the edge. The Dock will then spring right up. Pretty cool, huh?

MacWorld also points out that Apple didn’t simply go with the “Hide Automatically” Dock feature in fullscreen app mode because many fullscreen apps may have buttons at the bottom or on the sides and automatically displaying the Dock when moving your cursor to the edge of the screen could cause the Dock to block the buttons you are trying to click.

How To Always Show Scroll Bars in Lion

OS X Lion is the best version of OS X yet, but some of its design choices aren’t without controversy… especially the decision to make the whole operating system more like iOS.

In OS X Lion, scroll bars don’t exist unless you actually start scrolling. When you start moving up or down in a window, they pop up and function as normal, but it requires that you scroll first before you can actually access the scroll bar.

Here’s how to fix it:

1. Open Applications > System Preferences > General

2. Next to “Show scroll bars” tick the “Always” radio button.

Done! Now, scroll bars will automatically show in Lion as they did in Snow Leopard, even if you haven’t already scrolled.

Mac App Store reporting Error 100, here is the way to fix it!!!

Many users, who are testing the Mac App Store have been hit with the message We could not complete your App Store request. An unknown error occurred (100).

According to TUAW.com The fix for this seems to be simple.

The release of the Mac App Store has provoked yet another set of iTunes Terms and Conditions for us all to agree with (seriously, Apple, I think we can all agree we’ve surely agreed enough by now?), but the App Store seems to be flakey about reporting this to you. Quitting the Store and reloading it appears to be enough to bring it to life; you’ll know when you get it right because you’ll be walked through the usual T&Cs process. Other users are reporting success with restarting iTunes instead, or restarting their entire Mac, so that’s also an option if the first approach doesn’t work for you.
