10.4: A couple of Exposť tips
Authored by: gmachen on Mar 16, '07 10:54:36AM

Exposť is utterly useless to me because I have a utility that keeps me in "Single Application Mode," i.e., most of my background windows are kept hidden to reduce clutter. So when I invoke Exposť, none of the hidden windows are visible. Anyone know how to make Exposť show all my hidden windows, 'cause I'd really like to use it!

10.4: A couple of Exposť tips

Hrmz, maybe something like this Applescript? You could use QuickSilver to bind the script to a shortcut.

-- start of script
-- Unhide all apps
tell application "System Events" to set the visible of every process to true

delay 1

-- All windows, you have to have default expose bindings
tell application "System Events" to key code 101
-- end of script
More info about the key code here: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20040104160708152
