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.

Big Discounts on Macs at Best Buy This Week

Send Article to a Friend

We don't generally write about individual retailers and their limited-time Mac deals, but this week's sale at U.S. chain Best Buy, offering $50-150 off purchases of Apple computer hardware, seemed worth sharing. The discounts range from $50 off a Mac mini to $150 off some MacBook models and the Mac Pro desktop.

Many U.S. retailers offer sharp discounts on Black Friday, the day after the American Thanksgiving holiday that's considered the start of the holiday shopping season. Best Buy's offer is taking a different approach; their discount is available through Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.

The discounted prices are available on the Best Buy Web site as well as in Best Buy's stores that stock Apple hardware. (You can check availability at your local store online.) The company's "No interest for 18 months" credit promotion even applies.
