Right now, App Exposé is different from the way it was in Snow Leopard. It (four finger swipe down) seems to only show windows of one application. Does anyone know how to change this back to the "show-all-minimized-and-maximized-windows" Snow Leopard mode? It's really bothering me.

Nope.

This is my biggest gripe with Lion as well. If we could bring back All Windows Exposé I'll be happy.

Hopefully someone will come out with a fix in the not too distant future.

I believe you're looking for "mission control". Go to system preferences>trackpad>more gestures>Mission Control (swipe up with 3 fingers)

No, he's looking for the original expose (not mission control) which can be found by

Go system prefrences>trackpad>more gestures>app expose

I'm pretty sure OP has confused "App Expose" with "All windows Expose".

As Lion is now, it is impossible to use Expose to display ALL windows from various applications on the desktop. It currently only works to display all the windows from one SINGLE application at a time.

Mission control = all window expose + full screen windows
That's not really true. Mission Control groups together windows of apps, so you'll see windows overlapping each other if they belong to the same app. This makes it harder to choose particular windows that you want.

Is that what all problems is? You should read this.

Spread a cluster of Application windows or enlarge a single window.
Magic Trackpad – Two finger swipe up. Tip: Press the spacebar to Quick Look a highlighted window. Press the spacebar again exit Quick Look.
Magic Mouse – One finger swipe up.
