Readers keep discovering clever ways to use Lion’s Mission Control. One of the most recent suggestions is about how Mission Control shows each application in a desktop with its open windows organised in a stack. To get a closer view of those open windows, use a four- or five-finger spread gesture. If you prefer a simpler gesture, a two-finger upward swipe over the application’s windows will work too. Either way, the windows for the application move to the centre of the screen, expand, and fan out. Remember that as you move the cursor over the visible windows in Mission Control, you can press the spacebar to see an even bigger Quick Look preview.
