While you may be a big fan of ExposÃƒ©, sometimes there may be some functions you wish were enabled. Whether you use a button on your mouse, power corners, or a key on your keyboard, it still could be a bit more functional. One thing that many people wish for in ExposÃƒ© is keyboard controls, but they actually do exist.
The reason they are hard to find, is that there isn’t a place where you can remap the keys, so many people don’t notice them. Lucky enough, these tips are sometimes featured on Mac sites, so people can find out about them. Once you start ExposÃƒ©, your two options are: show all windows, or show all windows within a certain application. Whichever one you choose, hit Tab, and you can change which application is showing it’s windows. Now, you can use the arrow keys to cycle through. When you are done, hit enter or space to choose that window. If you decided that you didn’t want to open ExposÃƒ©, hit escape to go with the window you had chosen at the start. With these tricks, you may find that ExposÃƒ© becomes much more useful. For a list of all the available controls, see below.
¢ F9 – Show windows for all apps
¢ F10 – Show windows for one app
¢ Tab – Cycle through applications and their windows
¢ Shift-Tab – Go to the previous application
¢ Arrow Keys – Move between windows in ExposÃƒ©
¢ Spacebar or Enter – Bring selected window to the front
¢ Esc – Leave ExposÃƒ©, ignoring window selection
I hope this comes in handy and you’ve find new life in ExposÃƒ©.
