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.

Alsoft's DiskWarrior Combats Directory Damage

Send Article to a Friend

Alsoft's DiskWarrior Combats Directory Damage -- The folks at Alsoft, makers of DiskExpress Pro and PlusOptimizer, have released DiskWarrior, a new disk repair utility with a unique approach to recovering data. DiskWarrior focuses exclusively on directory data, pulling out as much information as possible and then creating a new, optimized directory, which the user can preview before saving changes. DiskWarrior won't be able to repair corrupted or damaged files (and doesn't seem to offer other traditional file-based features, like an "undelete" option), nor would it be able to help if a disk's directory is very badly damaged. Nonetheless, it might be useful for recovering missing folders or files or nipping subtle directory problems before they blossom into catastrophes. DiskWarrior costs $70, and supports HFS and HFS Plus volumes on IDE, SCSI, and USB devices. DiskWarrior requires a 68020 processor or better (including PowerPC), at least 16 MB of RAM, and System 7.1 or higher. [GD]
