    Hi all

    OK so I've only just downloaded and I'm still getting to grips, but how do i pull up finder quickly. I miss the old 4 finger swipe to view open apps where you'd always see finder.

    So what do we do now - is it just keyboard shortcuts and dropping to the dock or am i missing something?

    Cheers, Stu

    I used the screen corners method. Just move the mouse to a certain corner on the screen and brings up the finder.

    It's under the Expose/Spaces tab in system preferences.

    ok so shoot me down if I'm being dumb, but apple banged on about finder always being open in Lion, but why isn't so easy to pull up - disappointing if its just via the dock.

    Yes Mission Control replaced the Expose/Spaces tab.

    Go to mission control in the system preferences and you'll see Hot Corners in the lower left hand corner.
