After taking to look at Leopard Spaces, now I should take you around, deeper into spaces with F8.
What is F8?
F8 is the keyboard key that will bring you to Leopard Spaces when it’s pressed. However, you got to activate it first inside the System Preference.
Deep Inside Spaces – Direct with Arrow
Arrow keys can move around the highlight ( the Spaces remain still ). When you’ve reach your destined Space, pressing Return, Space or another F8 will bring you into that Space. In the picture below, the slightly darker Space is the highlighted one.
Deep Inside Spaces – Drag and Drop
With drag and drop, you can swap one Space with the other. For example, if you want to swap Space 9 with Space 8, drag the Space 9 to the top of Space 8 and Space 8 will move by itself to the initial position of Space 9. There will be a lot of tricks that can be done with this dragging and dropping.
Let’s say that I’ve already assigned my Firefox to Space 2. Therefore, when I opened my Firefox, I will be warped into Space 2. The very same thing will also happen when I switch my active window to Firefox. But the question here is, I’ve opened Firefox and I moved the Space 2 to Space 9, what will happen if :
- I open new Firefox window?
- After I opened new Firefox window, I use Command-[`] to rotate between Application windows?
- Then I use the Application switcher to switch to Firefox itself, using Command-Tab followed by Command-Shift-Tab, what will happen?
Deep Inside Spaces – Full Exposé
If you press F9 (activate Exposé) when you’re inside Spaces, you will get all your Spaces display being in Exposé mode. Not sure about that? These are the snapshots I took before and after Exposing my Spaces.
Before Exposing, you will see that there are many unseen areas..
After Exposing, everything is visible now..
