    Just been browsing OS X Daily and I came across this cool gesture that's kind of "hidden" in Lion.

    It allows you to instantly jump to the most recently used space with a four finger tap (it's a four finger double tap on my machine but whatever...)

    Open terminal and insert:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock double-tap-jump-back -bool TRUE;killall Dock
    and hit enter and you're done!

    To disable it, insert this into the terminal and hit enter:

    Code:
    defaults delete com.apple.dock double-tap-jump-back;killall Dock
    Enjoy :)

    I have discovered a new hand gesture that I give my trackpad ;-)
