I can't seem to figure out how to set up spaces and exposes on this latest OS. Can anyone help?


Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    It's all done through Mission Control. If you move the cursor to the right and upper edge of Mission Control a pop-out will appear for creating a new "space."

    Because it's been removed for some badly implemented feature called Mission Contol

    It was really fast and efficient before. But we'll see what I feel after I get used to it.

     

    Thanks everyone

    Yes it was, now it's gimmicky and complicated.

     

    Unwanted and badly implemented change for the sake of change, not that it actually improves anything.

     

    I don't mind trying a new way of doing things, it's just the arbitrary way they force things on people, like we are stupid and need to be told what's best for us.

     

    Let the cream rise to the top I say, let the best method win.

    Yes, I did have to search, and consequently find this page for the answer on how to add a space to my workflow, but I actually like it.  Everything is always a learning curve.  Instead of going in to SystemPrefs which always seems to pause a little before loading, we can now go direct to adding a page when necessary in Mission Control.   I even like how iTunes auto creates a new page too, leaving the desktop free.  I think this time the change was good.  Well done Apple.   I never thought it was fast and efficient before, but now it is.

    I have figured out how to set up the spaces, but on my other computer I can use command and arrow to shift from ome space to another. On this computer I keep having to put the mouse in the top corner and navigate to them that way. This is clunky. Is there some way to set up a keystroke to go to the other spaces?
