Enter QuickTime's full screen mode with a gesture Laptop Macs
I have been wondering where gestures (on the MacBook Air and new MacBook Pros) can work and how, so I've tried gestures in many apps, including QuickTime Player. If you use the "make bigger" pinch gesture on an open movie, it goes full screen. If you do the opposite "make smaller" gesture, the movie goes back to windowed mode. Pretty handy for those of us who need to work with many clips and movies.

This seems to be true also for many (all readable?) files in QuickLook. Movies, pictures, PDF's, Text files... all go full screen from QL with the "make bigger" pinch gesture (and return with the opposite gesture). Three-finger paging gestures also work in QuickLook. Try opening a multipage PDF, or multiple images and swipe. PDF's scroll to the next page, and images switch to the next/previous image, just as you'd expect. Quite nice.

I hope more apps build in gesture functionality. Pinching in Photoshop, GarageBand, Google Earth... anything that has zooming/scrolling/panning capability, would be most convenient.
