10.7: Slow down the entering of Mission Control System 10.7
Pressing Ctrl+Shift+Up-arrow will animate the entering of Mission Control in a slow, smooth fashion.

In Lion, the keyboard shortcut to enter Mission Control is Ctrl+Up-arrow. This will quickly show you all your windows and spaces. If you add Shift to the keyboard combo, the animation goes much slower, almost like a presentation transition. Not sure why this would be useful other than to slow down productivity.

[crarko adds: This hint presumes you haven't remapped the default keyboard shortcut for Mission Control in System Preferences. Use of the Shift key to put these kinds of animations into slow-motion has been around for quite a while. Not surprisingly, it applies to Mission Control as well.]

Holding down shift while using the magic trackpad to enter Launchpad goes in slow motion.

Holding down shift + control while using the magic trackpad to enter Mission Control does NOT go in slow motion.

Holding down shift while using the magic trackpad to enter Mission Control does NOT go in slow motion.

Holding down shift + control (or just shift) while using the magic trackpad to Show Desktop does NOT go in slow motion.

Good times with randomness.

This hint does not work for me on my Macbook Pro. I have not remapped my keys, and control+up arrow defaults to page up not to Mission Control. Shift+control+up arrow does nothing.

This use of the shift key has been around for quite some time.

These key commands do nothing on my Mac mini with Mac OS X 10.7.1.

I get to Mission Control by two-finger double tapping my Magic Mouse. Pressing the Shift key while two-finger double tapping does not alter the speed for entering MS.
