Quick Tip - Keyboard Shortcuts for OSX Lion
I think I found this by accident :-)
Using the Macbook Pro, it's possible to access Mission Control and App Exposé from the trackpad, as explained in the gorgeous little videos that come with the System Preferences > Trackpad "widget" ( use [CMD][Space] to bring up Spotlight and then type "Trackpad" to access this ).
So, by default, if you swipe up with three fingers, you get to Mission Control - all the windows contract
and, if you swipe down with three fingers, you get to App Exposé - the windows of the active application appear
So far, so good - a few days ago I "discovered" that I can achieve the same effect, but only using the keyboard: -
[Ctrl][Up Arrow] - invokes Mission Control
[Ctrl][Down Arrow] - invokes App Exposé
So, if you don't have a track pad, this MIGHT be useful ?
