Safari opening all open screens

Hi all,

I know this is probably really basic, but just recently when I start to type something in the url line, Safari automatically minimises the current screen and shows all active screens, asking me to select the one I want. Obviuosly it doesnt realise that the one I started typing in is the one I want!

I've had a look through settings and cannot seem to find a solution.

Could someone please assist.

It's bearable, not life threatening, but damn annoying!

Seems like it's activating Application Exposť. Are you sure you're not pressing F6 or some other F-key? Check in System Prefs what the shortcut is for Application Exposť.
