Chapter 3. Customizing the Finder > Customizing Exposé

Customizing Exposé

Exposé () lets you quickly move windows out of the way temporarily to make it easier work with windows to find, move, or copy files. The default way to move windows with Exposé is to use keyboard function keys. However, these function keys might already be taken by other applications, or your computer. You can customize Exposé to move window in three ways: screen corners, keyboard, and mouse. Using screen corners, you can trigger Exposé when you point to one of the screen corners, which you can customize to display different windows. Using the keyboard pop-ups, you can change the Exposé keyboard shortcuts. When you display the pop-ups, you can press other modifier keys, such as Shift, Option, Control, or to create a new shortcut. If you have a mouse with two buttons, you can change options to trigger Exposé with your mouse.

Customize Exposé

Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences.

Click the Exposé icon.

In the Active Screen Corners area, click the pop-ups for the corner you want to use, and then select an option:

  • All Windows. Select to show all open windows at once.

  • Application Windows. Select to show all open windows in the current application.

  • Desktop. Select to hide all open windows and show desktop.

In the Keyboard area, click the pop-ups for each Exposé operation, press a keyboard modifier (Shift, Control, Option, or ) if you want, and then select a keyboard.

In the Mouse area, click the pop-ups for each Exposé operation, and then select a mouse button.
