I just went from High Sierra to Ventura, and I just can't find that one feature that would allow you, with the help of a shortcut, to display (highlight) all opened windows in a space.

The thing used to be set in Shortcuts in the preferences, but it's not there. Was this feature removed?

It's very useful when you have plenty of open windows on a single space. With this shortcut, it would bring all windows to the front and next to each other, in some kind of highlighted way.

I thought maybe they removed this because of Stage Manager. But it's not the same thing and Stage Manager doesn't replace that.

I have Ventura, and I found that Mission Control shows me pretty much all open windows. Not sure if that is what you need. I set up one "hot corner" to show me Mission Control -- see if you find that helpful. I'm no expert, just a long time Mac user.

I'm not sure, but you might just be saying you can't find where that is in the new System Settings which replaced the old System Preferences. If so, it's just "Mission Control" as @lescargot said.

In System Settings, on the left, select "Keyboard". Then, on the right, click on "Keyboard Shortcuts..." button. In the popup that opens, on the left, select "Mission Control". Then, on the right, you'll see the shortcut assignment for "Mission Control". I have control-up arrow there. I use that to see all open windows.

Thanks guys, it was in fact Mission Control. I don't know why, but it didn't behave the way I expected it. So I thought the feature I was looking for was something else and couldn't find it.

Now it works normally, as I am used to it.

I did notice one feature that is missing, which is Dashboard. Apparently it was removed with Mojave. So I have one free F-key now. Will find something to put there. :p
