    I'm new on the mac. Suppose I have a bunch of files open on the desktop. Is there a way to get a list of the files so I can bring a given file to the surface?

    Open files are usually handled by each particular program... TextEdit, Safari, Microsoft Word... each of them usually have a Window menu that will show you open windows, which are typically your open files.

    Expose looks like it is the only way.
    Spotlight seems to just be a way to search ... is there more too it than that?
