How To Video: Use Expose feature in Snow Leopard

1:17 /

Brian Tong shows us all the bells and whistles of Dock Expose in Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >> What's up? Brian Tong here with cnet.com to show you one of the newest bells and whistles in Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Now if you're familiar with Expose, they've now added a new feature called Dock Expose so if I hold my button on top of an app from the Dock, all the specific windows for that app will immediately snap to Expose. Now from there I can move around and press a space bar to preview individual items as well. We have so much going on at one time and a really cool feature is the ability to find content and use Dock Expose to throw it directly into an application. So for example here I have an e-mail and I want to put a picture in it. I know it's hanging out somewhere on my desktop so I'll first find it, then I drag and hold it on to the app; you'll see Dock Expose in action and then I'll find that e-mail window I want, hold the picture over it and it brings it to the front and now my picture is in my e-mail. They've also added an improvement to the Expose feature. You'll now be able to see the minimized windows in your Dock separated by a line to distinguish them from Windows on your desktop. I'm Brian Tong for cnet.com with your Snow Leopard How To. Use it wisely.
