Panther: Volumes still mounted on desktop? - Mac Applications & Software

Will volumes, etc. still be mounted on the desktop as in previous versions of the OS? I could give a sh*t about Apple's new little sidebar thing. I still want the ability to open drives from the desktop....

    Not by default, but it is a Finder preference setting, so you can have
    them show up. I didn't think I was going to like the Sidebar all that
    much, but have gotten very comfortable with it (especially like the
    little "eject" button next to removable media and servers).

    Can the sidebar be toggled on/off?

    Yes. If you click the little "Hide Toolbar" capsule-like button at the
    top right, the Toolbar and Sidebar disappear. Alternatively, if you
    want the toolbar but not the sidebar, you can just drag the divider to
    hide the sidebar.

    From the screenshots I've seen, the sidebar looks awfully big. If you
    want to leave it on, can you change its size? Or, at least, change it
    from vertical to horizontal orientation?

    You can change its width (little drag button). The text automatically
    resizes to fit as much as possible while remaining legible.

    ....or you can reduce it to an icon-only view. When you do this, holding
    the mouse pointer over one of the icons makes its name appear as pop-up
    text until you move it.
