    Hi all,

    My friend just got a new Mac Retina 13" and am helping her learn the Mac ways.

    Periodically, I make a gesture (not sure which) which causes the current screen to minimize to the open window to the TOP of the screen. I looked in the trackpad setting may times and cannot seem to find the setting causing this annoying minimization.

    Any help would be appreciated! We want to turn off whatever is causing this to happen.

    See attached screenshot. The open file is now a weird grey bar on the top and left side.

    You used a SHOW DESKTOP gesture, look under System Preferences > Trackpad > More Gestures > Show Desktop for its trigger and maybe even deactivate it.

    We did! It is off. In combing through the gestures, we thought it was that one but it continues to happen!

    Take a look at System Preferences / Mission Control / Hot Corners
