How do you get it to change direction?
i have looked everywhere for how and nothing!

I hate the normal way of:
*
*
*
*
I want it like so: * * * *
Across instead of up and down.

you can change the orientation by a key combination and clicking the box, but i can't remember which key it is... try the shift, option, and command keys.

Here are the different things you can do by clicking the resize box:
  • option-click: makes window larger or smaller
  • option-shift-click: switches between vertical and horizontal views (to answer your question)
  • shift-click: switch between shorter or longer application names
  • click: hide/display application names

Those are really cool! It's a lot nicer horizontal.

there are some really good utilities which can give you total control of the Applications Palette, try "Application Switcher Settings" which you can get from <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/thehub/ASSS/index.html"> ASSS</a> it allows you to modify all paramaters.
