    If I move my mouse over Word for example, then I want small preview of all my Word documents that I have open. And if I click on the preview, the document is selected and focused on.

    Is that possible in OS X?

    System Prefs -> Exposé and Spaces (top row)

    Check out the middle section of the Exposé pane. You have options.

    If you have OS X 10.6, click and hold on the application icon to view all windows for that application. Or, just invoke Expose to view all windows by using a 4-finger swipe down on your trackpad or use the F3 key. You could also do a combination of both where you use Expose to view all windows, then click (no need to hold) on the application icons in the dock to view windows only for that particular application. When in Expose, you can also press the Spacebar as you hover over the windows to see a larger preview.

    Thank you, click and hold on the app icon is close to what I'm looking.

    Problem with F3 or 4-finger sweeps, is that it is a mix of applications and is harder to find what I'm looking for ( I have alot of things running )

    Thanks for explaining that clearly, I've seen that in the 10.6 intro but I couldn't remember it and it was a bit confusing at the time.
