OS X :: SL Bug With Minimized Windows And Expose?

Jan 12, 2010

Sometimes (not always but easy enough to reproduce) when I minimize windows (especially MS Word) and then activate expose to see everything the minimized windows look like this. I've got a completely clean install (no migration assistant etc) of SL 10.6.2 on a 13inch MBP. It's not really a huge problem just curious if anyone else has experienced this? I'm hoping it might disappear in 10.6.3 but I'm sure that is a long shot

OS X :: Closing Windows While In Expose

Apr 8, 2010

Sometimes with expose I find that I have fifteen windows/browsers open, and want to close a bunch of them. So far I've been selecting each one individually to bring it up, then closing it, then going back into expose to get the next one and do the same. Is there anyway I can just close windows while viewing them in expose without having to select them and exit expose?

OS X :: How Does Expose Decide How To Scatter Windows

Jun 21, 2009

if I have four windows open in Safari and hit Expose, sometimes the windows are neatly exploded into a square, with each window at a corner of the square. Other times, the same four windows are sort of scattered in a stair-step arrangement. Yet other times, the SAME four windows are just randomly scattered across my desktop.

I'm just curious how Expose determines how to scatter the windows, and if there is something that I can do to control the window scatter order and structure?

OS X :: Shuffling Of Windows In Expose By Design?

Sep 10, 2009

I'm probably daft but why do the windows swap positions in Expose? I mean... what's the point? There doesn't seem to be any logic to it. (But I'm probably missing it).

I go in and out of Expose a lot and find myself always hunting for the window I want - hard to do on a 13" screen. (Especially when I ain't sober which is most of the time).

At least the titling of each window in SL helps a bit.

OS X :: Expose Sends All Windows Off Screen?

May 28, 2010

my son got on my computer, and now when i use expose, as soon as I release the buttons, the exposed windows zip off the screen. The whole perimeter of the screen is shaded as well. I have to click on the app in the dock to get the window back, or on the edge of the window. It is very annoying. I can't see any changes he could have made in preferences. (He is not even 2.)

OS X :: Way To Close Windows/apps While In Expose?

Jun 3, 2010

I love expose, but I often find myself with 10+ windows/browsers/apps open that I no longer need. It feels so intuitive to hold my cursor over something I want to close to highlight it, and right click it (two finger tap) to close it. But of course this is not the case.

To my knowledge there is no way to close stuff while in Expose. Am I right or is there a way to close stuff while viewed in Expose?

Windows On Mac :: Win7 Features - Expose Button And Zoom

Nov 1, 2009

I'm trying to see if Win7 has a feature that all the current open websites show up like thumbnails like in Expose. The Win7 features "Shake, Peek, Snap" don't sound exactly what I am looking for. And any chance they have a general ZOOM feature like in Leopard when you hold CTRL and the mouse wheel also?

IMac :: Expose Feature - Chucks All Windows Out On Activation

May 18, 2010

I have a 21.5 inch iMac and after using the expose feature for about 30 mins or so it acts strange. I normally use it through the 3rd 'squeeze' buttons on my mighty mouse but it happens with the expose button on the keyboard too. When I activate expose it chucks all the windows out but then brings them all back straight away where before it used to chuck em out n scatter them until I pressed it again. I tried changing the mouse and keyboard and did a software update too but no luck. The same thing happened in my previous 20inch aluminium iMac?!

OS X :: Won't Work With Desktop View / Can't Find Command

Jan 25, 2010

I am familiar with CMD M combination to minimize screens. This is not doing the trick. I experience that I have to use this command several times as some programs just want minimize based on one command. It requires that one makes the programs active by clicking the cursor and than use cmd M again.

Is there yet another command that results in a an immediate desktop view.

MacBook :: Clear Out Docs To View Desktop?

Feb 16, 2012

I used to have an older macbook where i could hit the f11 key and that would automatically move all the windows to the side and would let me click on a doc on my desktop.  now i have a macbook 3.1, intel core 2 duo, 2.2 GHZ, l2 cache 4 mb and it no longer has that feature.  the f11 key is reserved for the volume and i really need the volume.  i think that feature is located here on the f11 key in this photo,  


but when i click on f11 nothing happens.  even if that feature were available it would not be an ideal solution because i really need the volume keys.  i've tried reassinging the volume keys to other keys but i can't figure out how to do it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: View Only The Desktop With Icons And The Finder?

Mar 14, 2012

I have a hot corner set up to show the desktop.. in Snow Leopard when I exposed the desktop and then clicked on the finder in the dock *just* the finder would show. 

Now, with Lion, when I click on the finder it comes into view but all the other open applications come sweeping back in hiding the desktop. 

Can I change this back to the way it was before? Or is there another sneaky quick way to show only the desktop and the finder? Set up an entirely different "desktop" in mission control dedicated only to having nothing open in it? 

In short: I need a fast way to drag icons from the desktop into folders in the finder. Also, this is driving me nuts.

OS X :: Can't View Files On IMac From Windows XP Share?

Jul 16, 2009

I recently convinced my Mom to buy a Mac. We got her a new 20" iMac and she loves it. I'm in the process of transferring over all of her files from her PC over a network share, but I'm having trouble viewing those shared files.

I am connecting to the PC through the smb:// protocol and I can see the share... but not the files in it. I've double checked the permissions and everything seems to be in order, but no avail. I even checked the firewall settings on both computers.

I myself have a desktop PC and a MBP setup. I have no problem accessing any shares on my PC from my MBP, and I've done nothing different with my Mom's setup.

Windows On Mac :: Won't View .rtf Files On OS X 10.6.2 / Showing Error

Feb 3, 2010

A company is sending statements as .rtf files. I cannot view them in TextEdit or Pages. I have opened them on PC's so I know that the files exist are are viewable on a PC. The error I get is:

"The document 'xxx.rtf' could not be opened. The file isn't in the correct format."

In smaller text below it:

"The file might be corrupted, truncated, or in an unexpected format."

I get the same message for both TextEdit and Pages.

(To clarify, 'xxx' is not porn. I replaced the actual file name with 'xxx' for this post.... just incase you were wondering)

Intel Mac :: Why Cant View Multiple Open Windows

Apr 19, 2012

I used to be able to scroll the pointer down to the lower right hand side of the screen to display the multiple Internet Explorer windows that i had open. Now, for some reason it wont work and the only way to do so is to minimize each screen till i find the right one. I am not sure what, if anything, i have done to change this setting.

Windows On Mac :: Parallels Desktop Or VMWare Fusion For Windows 7 RC?

May 7, 2009

I'm having pretty bad difficulties with Windows 7 and Parallels Desktop. I know it's not supported yet, but some folk have it working. I can boot up, but I can't install Parallels Tools. I changed the Configuration to "Windows 2008 Server" like someone suggested in another forum, but fails to boot up.

Seems like VMWare are offering a better helping hand than Parallels Desktop - and while it is not supported yet by them, they say that if you use Windows 2008 Server Config everything works apart from sound.

So am I best giving it a bash with VMWare's Fusion? 30-day trial for free. But I'd rather try get Parallels working since I paid for it.

Applications :: Always Open Finder Windows In Column View

Feb 13, 2005

After a few months mild use on OS X I'm starting to get used to it more and more now. I love the column view, but find it really annoying that occasionally new finder windows will open in Icon view. What exactly is the point of the finder preference "always open new windows in column view"? It sounds pretty straight forward, but finder doesn't exactly pay much attention to it. When I'm viewing in column view and I command-double click a folder, finder will open a new window in Icon view, depsite my preference. I have to reset the new window to column view and then close it, and then when I repeat the command-double click it will open in column view but it kinda defeats the point. I've read numerous posts about finder not remembering views, I don't understand also why there's only an option for column view? why isn't there "always open in list view" or "always open in icon view" option?
