I'm not one to use Mission Control features - prefer everything on my desktop screen.  Somehow I clicked on something and now the Mail application is it's own (full screen) window Mission Control panel.  This is terribly frustrating as I typically am writing off one email into another and it won't let me have multiple windows open at once.  I figured out how to add additional Mission Control panels but can't figure out how to get my Mail app back on the desktop.  I'm sure it's something simple - but definitely not as intuitive as Apple is famous for, sigh....


Thank you an

    I do not use Mission Control but have you tried going to Applications and dragging the Mail app to the dock.  Then you can open Mail from there and then open different windows in Finder or in the Mail app.

    OK, I think I know what you meant as far as the window being full screen.  If you go back to your original window and  put your curser all the way to the top in the menu bar you should have the resize icon appear in the top right. It is a blue square with white opposing arrows in it.  Click on it and your window should return to normal size.  Actually I think I am repeating what you have already found.
