    Please also tell me. I want to do a clean lion install because I think there are some issues. But I downloaded Lion from app store and My internet is very slow, How do I do this without installing snow leopard first and than download it again.

    About your point 5 I can help you:

     

    Go to 'System Preferences' and open the 'Users & Groups' section. Below the listed users you find the 'Login Options', there you can choose between Full Name, Short Name and Icon…

    I completely disagree with you. Spaces was totally unusable and confusing conceptually and UIwise, in my opinion. I never used it. But I love mission control. With one gesture I can clearly see all the desktops, full screen apps, dashboard - everything. Simply fantastic and more usable than spaces ever was.

    The one thing I would like to see is that when you expand a cluster of windows in Mission Control that it would display each window to a larger scale.

    right is what i was trying say before but apple delete my post because nothing to do with the post.

  • tmsnnnz Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    How can you clearly see all desktops if they're covered up with windows? It's not a matter of opinion - you literally cannot see them.

     

    Beyond that, I think it's disingenuous to say that old Spaces was "totally usable" - that's simply not true. Scores of people at our company use Spaces constantly. It's clearly a simpler UI than Mission Control.

    Here we are, everyone is starting to talk about spaces. fine LOVE mission control as much as you wish or whatever. I just want expose back as a stand alone it was before I am not interested in mission control or spaces. You need to understand that a lot of home users are only using internet and a few things at the same time, they only need one desktop and expose stand alone which is very user friendly, why can they not have this a stand alone without going in to mission control. I or no one is saying expose is better. I dont know if you have noticed but when you go on full scrren mode on safari ot goes in to a seperate desktop and it does that for each full screen safari that you open, so if you have 6 pages of safari that means 6 desktop. I also asigned photoshop to desktop 2 but asigned finder to desktop one. I went on desktop one and right clicked on an image open in photoshop BUT guess what althoug photoshop is asigned to desktop 2 but it has opened image in photoshop on desktop one. There are a lot of infringement and bugs. another thing is why in mission cont rol there are so much spaces wasted at the bottom, right and left side with this grey background. I am sorry to say but those who love mission control should use it and try to find bugs to report to apple because I am not using it because I do not need it I only need expose but I cannot have it just now BUT I hope Apple will put expose back as a stand alone app.

    regards

    For item 1.  The option is still there but the keyboard combo is different.  In the Mission Control system preference, it's under 'Applicaion windows:'.  The new combo is ctrl-arrow down.  I've returned it to F10 on my old MacBook.  Invoking that (or the new key combo) while in Safari will 'Expose' all active windows foe the app.  This should apply to all other apps as well.

     

    For item 2. Click and hold (or right click) on the app in the Dock and select 'Show All Windows'

     

    It's still not great.but workable.  Personally, I find MC to be a small bag of hurt and dislike the matted photo approach to it's appearance - very amateurish.

  • delizaza23 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thank you for the option one and I will just use this untill expose is back. Hopefully

    This probably won't happen if there's already a window open in Photoshop.

    To remove your full name go to system preferences>Users and Groups>select the account and then click login options, you can change it to eith Full Name, Short Name or Icon and it will be the icon that you need to select

    ok guys please tell me this. You know how you right click an icon and click on show all windows. How do I create a shot cut for this.

    If you're referring to right-clicking on a Dock icon, what you are seeing is show "Application windows" part of Mission Control.  There is already a keyboard shortcut for that in:

     

    /System Preferences/Keyboard/Keyboard Shortcuts/Mission Control.  I've re-assigned it to F10 on my old MacBook.

     

    The extra advantage that using the right-click in the Dock gives you is the ability to view all windows in an active but not in the foreground, application whereas the keyboard shortcut only works for the front most active one.

  • delizaza23 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have been using mission control to try to get used to it but still have problems.  THE BEST SOLUTION APPLE SHOULD DO IS. when in mission control  exposing should expose the way it exposed before, I mean lets say you have 10 safari pages open, 4 finder and 7 key note open. when you go in mission control, you go over the the safari and when you swipe it exposes BUT IT DOES NOT SEPERATE THE 10 SAFARI PAGES CLEARLY. so what I am sayin is expose within mission control should seperate the pages clearly as before.

    Totally agree with the opening comment.

    Mission Impossible more like.

    Unbelievable.
