    one feature i found convienent on my old ibook with panther was the function of F12 to "zoom out" to an organized view of all programs open to pick the one desired. with my updated macbook pro, this key gives zooms widgets, not programs. is there any new key for this old feature or is it possible to change the function?

    Do you mean like when you press "F9", or something different?

    i don't care what key it is, i just want the function back.

    i never really realized that i liked it until it was gone :(

    You never responded to the question, was pressing "F9" down the same thing as what you were talking about in your first post?

    Ah, I forgot, you have to press "fn" + "F9" to get it to work.

    i think you're talking about exposé. refer to the dashboard and exposé pane in the system preferences to see what key is mapped for that function. this is what the preference looks like on my computer.

    Glad I could help :).

    You might consider remapping the Exposé key to what you're used to in system preferences>Exposé.
