    I think many of us have noticed that in El Capitan, the spaces bar in Mission Control is hidden until you move the mouse cursor over it. Is there a way to make it work like before?

    Bump. I would like to request the same 'old' feature. Even if it's not the default setting, the old option should still be available, I don't think removing the preview of spaces makes the interface easier to use. Seems like few people have interest in this topic though...

    i agree. the whole point of mission control is supposed to give you a quick overview. reducing visual information to labels (with often unrevealing terms like 'desktop 1' and 'desktop 2') gives does not contribute to a fast overview, and adds an extra step to finding things.

    likely spearheaded by the same clueless person who came up with 'piles' of windows grouped by application. visually it doesn't do very much to help find things (hint: a pile of windows was the problem expose/mission control was supposed to solve). and now that they're going back to old behaviour in el capitan, they're bragging about it like its a new feature.
