“Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the things they make it easier to do don't need to be done.” Andy Rooney

More Mac today! Lets look at the system preferences by clicking the button on the dock at the bottom of the screen. Click on the Dashboard & Expose button to see your options. Many people don't use this but it is a favorite of mine. You will notice around the small screen a bunch of minus symbols. Click on any of these and a list will pull down, then choose all windows. Now what the heck does this do? Well, if you bring your mouse to the same corner that we changed it, it will shrink your current window and show all the other windows that are open at the same time. You can now click on any of the windows to see it in actual size. This is a great way of juggling many open applications and windows like jumping from Safari to iPhoto or whatever. The other choice is desktop. I usually put this one in the bottom right on my computer but put it wherever it is convenient. This is a quick way to get to your desktop when you have a bunch of stuff you are working on. Give it a try.
