Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

Gmail to Introduce People Widget

Send Article to a Friend

It hasn’t appeared in our accounts yet, but we’ll be curious if it will supplant Rapportive for us.favicon follow link
