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.

TidBITS 2007 Holiday Hiatus

Send Article to a Friend

It seems that every year ends with a mad rush to finish as much as possible before the holidays kick in, but this year was truly extreme for Tonya and me. Along with redesigning the TidBITS Web site in August, we published 23 new and updated ebooks since the beginning of September, and I somehow managed to find the time to write "iPhoto '08: Visual QuickStart Guide" in November as well. I can't remember anything that happened before August.

We could never have accomplished even a fraction of this without the immensely capable assistance of Jeff, Glenn, Joe, Matt, and Mark; the many Take Control authors and editors; the savvy techs at digital.forest, our Internet host. We're also indebted to the knowledgeable authors who contributed articles throughout the year, our selfless volunteer translators, our corporate sponsors, all the people who make TidBITS Talk vibrant, and everyone who makes time to read what we write. Thank you, one and all, and may all your holiday wishes come true.

Although the pace of both will undoubtedly slow, we'll continue posting articles to the TidBITS Web site, and we'll keep moderating messages through to TidBITS Talk as well. The next email issue of TidBITS will appear 07-Jan-08, and the week after that, we'll be in San Francisco for the annual Macworld Expo excitement.
