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.

Apple reports that their 14-Mar-94 price lists stated incorrectly that the Power Macintosh 6100/60 logic board upgrade (item M2343LL/A) includes 2 MB of VRAM, or video memory. In fact, it has none. The basic Power Macintosh 6100 uses DRAM, or the standard dynamic memory, for video processing, just as the Macintosh IIsi did. The Power Mac AV models, and the video cards bundled with the 7100 and 8100 models, do include video RAM. [MHA]
