    In expose, when I have "all windows" as one of my hot corners, it only shows non-minimized windows. It used to show all windows----the "open" windows were on top with a bar demarcating them from the "minimized" windows.

    In short, when I go to the "hot corner" that is assigned "all windows" I want it to show maximized and minimized windows all at once.

    I have OS X 10.5.8.

    Thanks :)

    Leopard does not support showing minimized windows in Expose. Snow Leopard introduced that as a feature. Assuming you have an Intel Mac, you can upgrade to Snow Leopard to get the behavior you're looking for, but you won't be able to get it with Leopard.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Does it cost anything to upgrade?

    Yes. 10.5 to 10.6 is $29 US. That's the cheapest upgrade on record for the Mac OS. Of course, updates (such as 10.6.4 to 10.6.5) are free.
