Exposing Windows

When you have multiple windows and applications open at the same time, the screen can get cluttered and make it difficult to work. Exposé () lets you quickly move (temporarily) windows out of the way to make it easier to work with windows to find, move, or copy files. You can quickly hide all the open windows to see your desktop, or show all open windows or all open windows in the current application at the same time. When you press any of the Exposé keys quickly, the windows (hidden or shown) stay active using Exposé until you press the key again. However, if you press and hold the keys to use Exposé, the windows return to normal when you release the keys. When you're using Exposé, you can point to a window to see its name and hold the pointer over it or click the window to bring it to the front.
