    I've the mid 2010 MBP for a while now and have enjoyed some of the improvements over windows. One downside I am having with the change from windows is that I like the Windows 7 Taskbar better than the mac doc. I had installed some tweaks in windows to allow the taskbar to function more like leopard's dock but I liked the ability to see the open programs when I hovered over them. Is there a way to do this with osx?

    I would like to hover over the open application's icon and see the windows listed or actually see thumbnails.

    Also, I would like to right click and open new window...but I have to do this through the file tab or just remember command+N.

    Thanks...treb

    You learn something new every day. Aero Peek is one of the W7 features I like, a lot. This tip helps me do something similar while not leaving OS X. Thanks!

    I would be nicer to just click and then immediately see what's open...in a thumbnail format similar to windows 7, but hey, I can't have my cake and eat it too, can I?

    Thanks for that tip...that improves my experience a bit now.

    Well, I suppose you can.

    You can set an active screen corner to show the current app's windows. You can do that by launching System Preferences, clicking the Exposé & Spaces tab, and assigning that function to a specific corner of the window. So if you move your cursor to that point, it will immediately show you the current app's windows.
