A Better Way to Use Active Corners

I really enjoy the availability of "Active Corners" . Active Corners is the ability to use each corner of the screen to perform and action. You can control the settings for Active Corners in System Preferences -> Expose and Spaces on the Expose tab. (as seen in the picture below) You can ask any of the 4 corners of the display to launch any of the following.

  • All Windows
  • Application Windows
  • Desktop
  • Dashboard
  • Start Screen Saver
  • Disable Screen Saver
  • Sleep Display


Use Spaces More Efficiently

With Spaces, Mac users can finally enjoy what Linux users have had for years: virtual desktops. However, Leopards implementation has a neat trick that I have yet to see in any Linux distro. You can now perform “window dragging” between the desktops without having to use the multi-pane view (ie. 4 screen view).
Simply click on a window as though you were going to drag it. While continuing to hold down the mouse button, press control+<an arrow key> to move that window to another space. Then let go when you are done. Isn’t that a much easier way to manage window clutter?
