    I will be getting training online where I will view another person's screen using Yugma and will be performing the actions I view on my system in another app. I guess the best way to do this would be dual monitors but I have the Mac Mini. My desk doesn't have room for two monitors anyway.

    I need to see both screens full size. Is there some way to quickly switch back and forth between two screens? I tried Expose, but it keeps shifting the position of the windows which slows down the process of switching.

    If you use Leopard you can use Spaces. System Pref>Expose/Spaces. You can set one screen to space #1 and the other screen to space #2 then set it up in the Spaces Pref so you can hit CTRL+the space # you want and it will switch.

    ie: I am in space # 1, want to switch to space # 2, CTRL+2....

    Hope that helps

    Thanks. I have Spaces but haven't used it. I'll check it out.

    As Jon said, spaces it is and spaces was designed for just this reason. I mean, sure other reasons ... but here's one of them where spaces comes in handy.

    I love spaces. I have 9 set up and I really like how you can assign apps to a specific space...
