    Is it possible to turn off the fading in of icons when you use mission control to have multiple desktops? It's very annoying and actually slows down work.

    That is something I totally agree with. I wonder what they were thinking. It adds nothing to usability, is visually displeasing and yes the first thing I though was "how do I disable this crap?". Unfortunately the answer is "you can't"...

    Try changing the desktops, notice how the desktop icons fade in every time you switch desktops through missing control (mine is 4 fingers on the pad).

    All of the desktops have the same icons. Why do they need to fade in?

    Indeed. What's the purpose of the fade? When you're working it's kind of annoying.

    There is nothing "graceful" about the way it fades in. Knowing Apple, this move comes as a surprise.

    I know the effect you're talking about but it slows down your workflow?? That's stretching pretty far. Oy Vey. :rolleyes:

    I'm a bit lost here and still don't understand what exactly is "fading".

    Do you mean the transition/animation you see when the desktops slide? Or the zoom effect they have when you select one?

    1. Ensure Space 2 doesnt have any windows blocking the desktop icons.
    2. Switch from Space 1 to Space 2.
    3. Observe that the desktop icons (like your HDD, any mounted .DMGs, etc) fade into existence rather than always being in place and scrolling into view with the background.

    This annoys me slightly as well.
