Improving Pather 1: Exposé

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
Lets start a serie of "How to improve X" for each of the features. I´ll start the Exposé thread



My two gripes are these:



1) When I do a f9 I would like to be able to close down windows easily. Like press w and click and the window dissapears. This would make windows management many time more easy.



2) Why oh why can´t Exposé show RealVideo windows?



Anyone else?

    I think a better answer for #1 is to have a contextual menu that includes 'close window' in it. Pressing 'w' and then clicking is clumsy, and uses the same action (clicking) for two drastically different results.



    Of course, I don't have Panther yet, so I wouldn't know if this would be feasible, or if it's already in place.

    There is no way to close a window using Exposé.

    I have a 5 button mouse with 2 thumb buttons which I have assigned to expose application and expose all apps. Its really quick to do all apps, Click a window command-w expose all apps again.. I guess that only works if you have a mouse with an orgy of buttons



    I wish it was possible to make that GIANT application switcher (command-tab) programmable to a mouse button as-well. When changing apps and quickly navigating like that, I like to use my keyboard as little as possible. I think it would be much faster for me to just lean my thumb back and have that come up and stay up until I select an app than command tab -> Mouse over the app I want.
