Hiding Programs the Old-Fashioned Way

When it comes to getting windows out of your way, nothing can touch Exposé for speed and entertainment value. Once you’ve mastered it, the traditional rituals of hiding windows will seem charmingly quaint. “When I was your age,” you’ll tell your grandchildren, “we used to have to hold down the Option key to hide windows!”
