So way back in Tiger, if I used Exposé to show the Desktop, then clicked Finder in the Dock, a new Finder window opened without bringing back the other windows. This was a nice feature, since I use the Desktop to hold the items I am currently working on, and I could quickly bring up a Finder window to put them away. In Leopard and Snow Leopard, though, showing the Desktop, then clicking Finder in the Dock would open a new Finder window, but also brought all the other windows back onscreen. The solution, which was slightly inconvenient, was to open a Finder window, then show the Desktop, then click Finder in the Dock to bring out my Finder window and nothing else. In Lion, though, neither action seems to work. If I open a Finder window, show the Desktop, then click the Finder icon in the Dock, it un-shows the Desktop, meaning I cannot easily use the Desktop as part of my workflow. As big a cluster**** as Mission Control seems to be, I don't know if this is another bug, or if it is shiny new intended behavior. Any thoughts?
