    I can't understand it, why Os X shows each window from other spaces? I just want to see windows from current space. I know mission control is showing just current space but it shows every app. I couldn't understand why Apple decided to do like this? What is the benefit of this mechanism to user?

    I'm not following what you're trying to communicate. What version of OS X do you have? I believe that Expose was last functional with OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. If a newer version of OS X, then are you talking about Mission Control?

    From Apple's website: "Exposé is a built-in feature that can give you fast access to any open window with a few keystrokes, temporarily hide all open windows, or scale all windows down so you can get an overview of all of them."

    So, one of its purposes is to do exactly what you seem to not want, unless I'm really not reading your post correctly.

    Hit F8. Unless you changed it in System Preferences, that will show just the windows on the current Desktop. (Spaces are now called Desktops) Does that get you what you want?
