Taking Control of Your Desktop

Mac OS X and modern Macs are powerful. This power enables you to have many applications and documents open at the same time, which is great for your productivity. At some point though, you'll have so many open windows on your desktop that finding the specific document or application that you want to work on can start to become laborious. Fortunately, Mac OS X includes a couple of features designed to help you manage all the desktop clutter. Exposé helps you manage windows that are open on your desktop. Spaces enables you to create collections of applications and open windows so that you can switch among them easily.
