10.3: Show one window at a time with Exposť
Authored by: Eukaryote on Dec 19, '03 01:39:49PM

This works, but only if you hold down F11... If you just tap it to toggle Expose, then it brings all the windows back when you bring the window out of the dock.

10.3: Show one window at a time with Exposť
Authored by: osxpounder on Dec 19, '03 02:19:44PM

Hmm, either Expose has a really sensitive touch, meaning that a 'tap' must be very quick, or else there's something going on here ....

I tried it, and almost every time, I actually get what I want: just the minimized window. Sometimes, I get all the windows back on screen, though, and once, when I clicked the minimized window in the Dock, it zoomed .... up and off-screen to join its siblings in Exposť-land.

Actually, I find that if I hold down Exposť, all the windows always come back once I release it, no matter what I've done to un/minimize one of the windows.

I use the bottom-right screen corner for show desktop...

This makes it easy to show the desktop and then click on the minimized window.

Done as I have described, it works every time. A very cool way to blow away all your windows and simplify things, IMO.
