I don't understand how spaces can make life easier?

    like many things, spaces is an option and you decide between using spaces, the dock

    or window switching (alt tab)    each have pros and cons


    you can open applications, files, folders or drives in  different spaces at the same time and

    then switch between them using the commands:

    control 2 for space 2

    control 8 for space 8


    You can have up to four rows and four columns

    I never found it useful myself, but some have.

    Thanks for the candid answer.  At this stage of my life, I am not typically working on multiple projects at one time.  My sense, since reading the other post plus some on line info, is that you can just "sweep" everything related to one topic (work project etc) into one Space and it doesn't get co-mingled with other projects.


    I am following the directions and I don't see the links they mention. can't even find how to set it up. Enough said, I know what it is and don't need to dig deeper.  On to the next stumbling block I am sure.

    I think it works better/is more useful, if you have a Cell Phone glued to the side of your head!
