Hi,
My first mac was a MB, and I just added a 27" iMac to my collection. However I'm addicted to the gestures on the MB trackpad.

Maybe this is a silly question, but my searching has failed to come up with an answer. Are there keyboard equivalents to the up/down/side swipe gestures? I get frustrated trying to get access to a clear desktop or list the open apps...the only equivalent I have is the F3 key.

If anybody knows, please help!
 

Matthew.

If you're using the F keys as standard function keys, F11 moves all the open windows off the screen to show the desktop, and CMD + F3 if not; equivalent to the four finger upwards swipe gesture,
CMD + Tab opens the app swticher, equivalent to the four finger side swipe gestures.
