I don't get Spaces
Authored by: hamarkus on Apr 16, '10 08:24:12AM

Assume I have two spaces, I have Finder windows open in both of them. Now I close all Finder windows in space A. Shortly afterwards I decide to open a new Finder window while still in space A by clicking on the Finder icon in the Dock. What happens? I will be transported to Space B which still has Finder windows open.

That happens with every app which is needed in more than one space (and thus not permanently assigned to one space). Whenever I try Spaces, this behaviour pretty fast makes me abandon Spaces again.

This behaviour can be switched off in System Preferences > Spaces (last option in the window; at least under 10.6.)

First, in System Preferences->Spaces you can set the number of spaces, the default space applications load, and also configure your mouse to "display" all of the spaces at once. In my case, I configured the side button on my mouse to open spaces.

Once I click, and all spaces are shown, I simply click to switch to a particular space then press Apple Key + N, to open a new finder window. If necessary, I can then click my mouse to display all the spaces then drag and drop that finder window to any space I want.

It is a very fast process, maybe give that setup a try.
