Here’s what the toolbar looks like in Lion’s Mail, by default:
Yeah, I know you can figure out most of these, but it’s not supposed to be a puzzle.
It would be better if the toolbar looked more like this:
So let’s do it.
1. Select “Customize Toolbar…” from the View menu.
2. At bottom left corner, change “Show Icon Only” to “Show Icon and Text.”
3. Click “Done” (bottom right).
That’s it! So much better. And so easy to do.
You can always go back to Customize Toolbar… and make other changes, including adding and deleting buttons such as “Add To Address Book” and “Smaller Bigger.” And, if you get really good at things and you want that quarter-inch of vertical screen space back, you can change back to “icon only” or even to “text only.” Nice to know you have choices.
