Hot off the press! We are working hard to deliver more customization options and we have another one to share with you this week. (Click here if you missed the update from last week.) I’m going to introduce you to a new feature called adjustable columns. You can now specify the width of the columns in which your apps appear.
Here’s how to get started:
1. Go to your My Yahoo! page and use your cursor to hover over the space between two columns. (You will notice that the cursor will change to a slider icon.)
2. Click your mouse and the space between the columns will highlight.
3. Now move the cursor left or right and the columns on either side of the spacer will grow or shrink.
Why would you want to do this? Look at the sample I have above. The default layout has the list of links in the left-hand column, a wide center column, and a narrow right hand column. I think that the Weather app and the Today app would look better if they used less space on the page. If I had more space in the right had column, the Headlines app would appear more comprehensible and easier to read. So, let’s try it out!
After dragging the space between the two columns more to the left, I was able to make the page easier to digest… Oh yeah, this is much better!
I hope you’re enjoying these little product enhancements. Please continue to let us know how we can make your My Yahoo! better. We love to read your opinions in the comments section of this blog.
Now, go customize your page. You can add a new tab, add some new content, change your background theme, adjust the columns, and enjoy everything My Yahoo! has to offer!
