I thought I was able to mouse over to the Upper-Right corner of my 17" MBP's screen to invoke Expose to show "All Programs." But I just changed to a Samsung B2230 as the external monitor, and I have to go over to its Upper-Right corner to get Expose to do its thing.

 

I realize that the simple answer is to now make my Upper-LEFT corner my "Expose - All Programs" option.

 

But can the MBP's screen's Upper-Right corner be used when an external monitor is attached?

 

Many thanks.

    Clint,

     

    You can swipe 4 fingers down on the trackpad to reach expose as well.   You might need to turn that option on in System Preferences > Trackpad.

    Edit:  Also, If you go to System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement tab > move the screen on the right down a little to create a top corner on the left screen.  The corner expose should work then.
