hey just realised something!!
press f10, right...
then press... TAB!
Wow ... and I thought I'd seen all the Expose tricks already!
That's kinda cool!
I know!! now I can use expose completely without my mouse - something I'd not really explored before - try using cursor keys and enter... you can browse round real fast!
Shame they don't publicise these things (unless I just missed em)
Wow! I've never noticed this trick either! That's quite useful. Thanks!
What is this "trick" with expose you speak of? I can't try it out right now because I'm on a PC right now And I don't wanna wait till I get home!
Just activate "windows of current app" expose by hitting F10 and then click the tab key to alternate between all your current apps while still in F10 expose mode.
So if you have 1 Safari window and 2 iChat windows open, for example, you'll F10 while on iChat and get the two exposed windows, then press tab for it to jump to the Safari window being exposed. You get a neat little zoom effect when the app only has one open window too.
Didn't Steve mention this at WWDC 2003?
I guess we all forgot about it
Some of us need a reminder of the "power" of the Mac.
I like being told (reminded) of this "trick".
Thanks! Can't wait to get home and try it out!
This will work whenever you're looking at either "All Windows" or "Application's Windows" via Exposé.
You can also just hit the back-tick/tilde key to view each single application's windows, in turn.
i wonder if you guys know this,
if you hold shift down when you hit the expose Keys everything goes in slow motion
i wonder if it would happen even with TAB(after F10) hmm... going to go try that
*cries* stupid panther, I want you on my Wallstreet. I want a new laptop just for that reason.
I actually just found that out yesturday!
Funny, this works if I press F9 or F10
Cool trick either way!
Doesn't F9 hide all windows? *wishes he had Panther*
The shift trick does work when hitting tab. It does this trick in slow motion.
I was trying to get it to work earlier - but I guess I was being stupid, cos I got it to do it now... unless stuff only starts to work if you write it on a forum...
What's that? If you press cmd+shift+eject you get an ipod coming out of your cd drive? You're joking, right?
Nope that is F11!
This is a cool little trick - that I had forgotten about!
And yeah I use F9 alot more then F10!
And next year we will have F12 = Dashboard.
Expose for Widgets!
I like where Konfabulator's Konsposé's command is. I will set dashboard to F8, because F12 is used from Print Screen off my Windoze days. I woonder how many other 'Easter Eggs' are inside Mac OsX?
Very cool. Apple rocks. No question about it.
so did noone know about this? I feel quite proud of myself!!
Holding down shift while hitting F9, F10, or F11 does the exposé tricks in slo-mo.
But if you hit shift while hitting tab, it cycles backwards through the windows by order of apps (just like command+shift+tab).
Either way, I didn't know about using tab with F9 or F10. Very cool!
