I recently decided to do a fresh install of OS X on my MacBook now that Yosemite is out, so I thought it would be a good time to post all the software I currently use. It turns out that I use a lot of apps. This list will probably be outdated within a month.
When using iTunes, I often like to have the app running in full screen mode so that it doesn’t clutter my desktop. When I do this, I also like to have the MiniPlayer open so that I can easily change songs without switching back to the main iTunes window.
Just switching to the MiniPlayer will hide the main window, but I would like to have open at the same time. I found some instructions on how to do this, but I am noting the steps below as I’ve had trouble accessing that page in the past.
- Exit out of full screen mode.
- Set iTunes to show on all desktops by right clicking (or control + click) on the iTunes icon in the dock and selecting “All Desktops” under the Options menu.
- Open the MiniPlayer from the Window menu at the top of the screen.
- Enter full screen mode by clicking the full screen button at the top right of the main iTunes window (also found under the View menu).
