    I did some brief searching and seems like this is a feature that is not available in Lion (and one that I use a lot). In SL I could see all running apps even if they were minimized, is there a way to do this in Lion as Mission control only seems to show "active" apps and full screen apps. Thank you for the help.

    This feature as it stands seems to have been omitted in Lion. Tell Apple you want it back and who knows..

    App Exposé shows minimized windows.

    Mission Control does not.

    Yeah, it's odd.

    I think the minimized windows were removed from the main screen to give more room to combined spaces/expose content.

    But you are now able to click the minimized icons in the Dock. In SL, these Dock icons were inactive. So they are still accessible, though smaller.

    I noticed this right away after installing Lion, because it's a feature I use frequently. Does anyone know how to properly notify Apple of issues/feature requests like this?
