    Hello All.. I just installed the LION in my 13' MBP and was so disappointed...My favorite feature of showing up all windows (opened ones and minimized ones) for a hot corner is gone....now i cant see any of the minimized windows in the new Mission Control...and also, even while showing the open windows, it is very very messy....I attached file..just see the way it shows for 2 firefox and 3 chrome open windows..cant even easily differentiate what is what.....are they any settings to set this right ? Please help...

    Had it - restarted - problem solved. Funny how a simple restart can fix so many problems.

    Lion is messy. OS X is fantastical, but lion is to OS X what vista was to windoze.

    System Preferences > Trackpad> App Exposé

    Maybe this is what you’re looking for?

    That one is not showing all the open windows..it is just showing the windows of the same type...

    Okay here is what i used to have in SL..

    Say, i have 2 finder windows, 2 chrome, 2 firefox, 1 vlc open...when i take my mouse pointer to a hot corner, it used to show me all my windows ( open and minimized ones, in a very clear way)...

    Now, it just shows the open ones ( ignoring the minimized windows)..and the way it is showing is also messy....

    Okay to het this exactly, open 2 chrome and 3 firefox windows and go mission control, you will see what exactly i am saying..and also, minimize a firefox window and try again....

    The Expose you said, shows windows of same type

    Apple removed all windows Expose' and minimized windows. You have to go into each application now to see all it's windows, maximized or minimized.

    Ohh I see what your saying. The only way to do it now is to enable the 4 finger swipe down, but you can only see all your windows (minimized included) for just that app. Hopefully it’s something that will be fixed with an update later on.

    My 2006 MB (Black) is doing the same thing, but my friends 2011 MBP is working just as shown on apple.com and on the keynote.

    OP, what year is your MB? I was wondering if my graphics card couldn't handle Mission Control since it's a 2006. However, it has worked properly sometimes, but mostly it does what yours is.

    Mine looks just like yours, but it's supposed to look like the image I attached (my friend's '11 MBP looks like that, along with the apple keynote and apple.com).

    The 4-finger swipedown that shows every open window is one of my most-used features... I'll be annoyed if they really took it away.

    Better touch tool to remap gestures to what they should be.

    I don't know if they've updated it for 10.7, but if they haven't I'm sure they will in the upcoming days.

    I just opened 3 safari's, iTunes, iCal, and Mail, and my Mission Control still looks like the OP's and not the correct way as shown on apple.com and from their keynote.

    Any suggestions or explanations? I have a 2006 13'' MB (Black).

    Thanks

    Oh yea. That’s definitely not right. It looks like it’s only showing the icon for iTunes and not for Safari like it should be and then separating them accordingly. Mine doesn’t do that.

    Well thanks for the replies guys. I'm probably going to get one tomorrow and if I can, ask for one with SL still installed. Lion's great and all, but I love having Expose and hot corners; they really did speed up anything and everything I did.
