Leopard: Spaces Tips

Apple’s latest Mac OS X incarnation comes bundled with a handy feature called Spaces which is essentially a virtual desktop manager. While being common knowledge that F8 activates spaces for switching and dragging windows between them, the following is little known:

  • While in the overview mode (F8) you can just press the number of the space you want to switch to on the keyboard.
  • You can drag a window to one space’s edge to switch it to the next.

Also be sure to check Mac OS’s help for spaces tips and tricks. If you are using the Application Assignment feature and want to be more flexible check out these scripts to perform the System Preferences actions with a keystroke (if you are using Quicksilver).
