10.3: Create movable mini-windows with Exposé
Authored by: mistercow on Jan 26, '04 02:14:23PM

You can also do this in the terminal with

sleep 3 ; killall "Dock"

I know, I know what you pedantic shell fanatics are going to say: "Be careful when using killall," or more irritatingly, and all too commonly "NEVER use killall, you evil person, or you will doom the world." True, if you have another process called "Dock" for some bizarre reason, it'll be killed too. You might also kill other users' Docks, but aside from unminimizing their windows, I don't think that will do much harm. Maybe I'm a fool for using killall. Maybe one day it will cause me a lot of pain and suffering. All I know, is I prefer to type the name of an app rather than looking up its PID, and even if you do look up the PID, you still might kill the wrong process.

Now my rant is over (which looking back, may not come across as good natured as I might have liked. *considers throwing in some ^_^'s here and there, but decides not to*)

Interestingly, you can still click on elements in many applications, but the "hotspots" where you can click them are in the wrong place as a result of the non-translation of coordinates.

If there are few enough windows for them to stay the same size, the offset is very small. I see potential for an annoying prank here. Maybe it isn't so useless after all.

Clicking seems to work fine for me– I am working on this currently in mini-mode!
