Using Expose within Spaces

To drag a file into an application that's running in another one of your Spaces, use Expose while in Spaces overview mode. First, press F8 to go into Spaces overview mode, then press F9 to Expose all application windows. Hover over the application window you want and wait a moment or press the Space bar, and both that space and that application come to the foreground, ready for you to drop the file.

Running Windows on a Mac Ebook Updated to Version 1.0.2 -- Keeping up with the latest techniques for running Windows on an Intel-based Mac can be challenging, but Joe Kissell makes it easy with the latest update to "Take Control of Running Windows on a Mac." Version 1.0.2 of the ebook covers the much-anticipated 1.0 release of Parallels Desktop and adds information about using Parallels Compressor to compact a virtual disk. (You might also be interested in reading the TidBITS review of Parallels Desktop.)
