Get rid of a stuck Exposť screen border System
When you invoke the Exposť "Show Desktop" function, a translucent black border appears around the screen to let you know that you're in Exposť mode. But sometimes, this border will stick to the screen edges, even after you've restored your windows. It can be pretty annoying. One way to get rid of it is logging out and back in, but that's tedious.

But fear not! There is a solution. Exposť is controlled through the Dock, so simply killing the Dock process will get rid of the black border. You can use Activity Monitor, Terminal (killall Dock) or whatever to kill the Dock.

I have a script in my Script menu which will quit the Dock and restart the Dock though not for this reason. Now this script has an additional potential use.

tell application "Dock" to quit
tell application "Dock" to activate

How often do you say to yourself, "I didn't do it; so of course, it didn't get done?"

Funny I have never had this problem.
