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.

Poll Results: Buy and Buy

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: Buy and Buy -- Last week's poll asked where readers prefer to purchase Macintosh-related hardware, and (a sign of the times) online retailers were the clear favorite, cited by more than 60 percent of the poll's respondents. Also faring well were the more traditional sources of mail order catalogs (41 percent) and local Apple dealers (32 percent), while nearly 20 percent of respondents said they prefer to purchase directly from manufacturers, and 15 percent liked office and computer superstores. In retrospect, we should have called out campus dealers and other education-only channels separately, but it doesn't seem to have confused many respondents, with the "Other" category getting only three percent of the votes.
