    I used to use this hotkey a lot back when it was F10 (I believe). Now I've gotten back into writing, and all my text edit windows get rather chaotic pretty quickly, stacking up over one another...
    and now I need to know the new shortcut for that function which makes all windows of whatever software you're in visible at once so that you can click one and it zooms back in.

    Google tells me the answer is F3, but that's not correct. F3 shows all applications, not all windows of the currently active application.


    ----------

    On a related note/rant, it drives me crazy the way Apple pasted iTunes controls over half the function keys on all their newer keyboards. F11 for example used to be enormously helpful, but not anymore when you have to hold down fn first. Of course I remapped that function to a mouse button long ago, but whenever I'm on the go with no mouse it's rather frustrating that volume down (which can be accomplished in many other ways) takes priority over something infinitely more useful. Making users rely on third party remapping software and other workarounds is not in line with the "it just works" motto.

    Control + Expose also works

    BTW., its not F3, its Expose key. F3 is Fn+Expose
