Expose Trick

Recommended Posts

I was just using expose earlier, when I decided to use Cmd+Tab, and see what happens. Well, apparently, if you are using expose all windows, or expose app windows, and you hit Cmd+Tab and choose an app, then you switch to all the windows running only in that app.

If you hit any expose key you can cycle though all open apps using the current expose type with the TAB key, even expose F11 (show desktop) seems to hop the open apps around and about about on the edge of the screen.

 

This is really nice if you are just watching a couple of apps at once, like a long render and a big download and you have a TV screen or Quicktime clip open that you want to still see.

 

Because the mouse hides and no one window is expose selected you can sit in the current "show all" expose mode permanently, or at least for as long as you're monitoring two or more apps at the same time.

 

I made a screen video of it..

How about something totally redundant that serves no purpose?

 

press Shift and F9, F10, or F11 and see the windows move at half the speed, just because they can. ha.

 

can't figure out why that feature was included. :?:

It was included so Steve Jobs could slow down the effect when Exposé was first introduced at Mac Expo.

 

Rumor has it that it was supposed to pulled from the final release, given Steve's dislike for "Easter Eggs", but the development team got wind of the fact that Windows Vista (then code named Longhorn) was to include a similar Minimizing and Window switching effect that could be slowed down using the Shift key modifier, so Steve allowed it to stay in the final release.

 

Turns out the rumor was true, so thank goodness for insiders and spies in Silicone Valley.
