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.

Duo Warning

Send Article to a Friend

Duo Warning -- Murph Sewall passes on a tale of caution. "I recently heard of a Duo user whose daughter threw "something" (apparently the System Enabler extension) away. Oops! The Duo no longer will start up. Since there are no Duo Docks and no floppy adapters available, the only way to fix it at the moment is to mail the Duo back to Apple." [The moral of the story is to make frequent backups via File Sharing and be careful with things that might corrupt the System file until you have a Duo Dock, MiniDock, or floppy adapter. -Adam]
