Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

QuickTake 100 to 150 Upgrade

Send Article to a Friend

QuickTake 100 to 150 Upgrade -- Apple announced last week that owners of the QuickTake 100 digital camera can upgrade to a full QuickTake 150 for about $200 through 30-Nov-95. Units have to be sent to an upgrade center to be fitted with new components, a close-up lens, batteries, and software. It's worth noting that the Mac upgrade comes with PhotoFlash 2.0, a reasonably nifty and scriptable image editor. QuickTake 100 owners can upgrade by calling 800/399-5111 to receive a prepaid shipping container. Apple plans to turn around upgrades within two weeks. [GD]
