    Mission controll and photoshop settings

    The answer to your photoshop question is you are cycling the viewing modes.
    the shortcut key to do this is F

    The screen you get randomly and like is known as Exposé, or under the new Lion OS Mission Control

    if you go to System Preferences then click the "Mission Control" tab
    You will see the Fkey that is assigned to invoke it. You can also get to it via gestures or mouse clicks, and all of which can be turned on or off, or modified from one key to another.

    Expose is great, you can set it to either show all windows open or all windows open with a single program.

    Try it out.
