from the swither f.a.q. in the switcher forum:

Q: How do I show the desktop like I could in Windows?
Q: What is this expose I keep hearing about?
A: Expose is a neat tool for window management.
The shortcuts used for Expose are:
F9 - Show all active windows from all programs. Click on any one to bring it into focus.
F10 - Show all active windows from the active or in focus program. Click on any one to bring it into focus.
F11 - Hide all windows - this is not the same as minimize, as show desktop works in Windows. Allows access to the desktop.
Pressing any of these keys a second time puts everything back the way it was. Pressing another Expose shortcut switches to that action.


Q: That's nice and all, but what I really wanted to do was "minimize" everything like I used to be able to do in Windows. Can I move everything to the Dock?
A: Sure. Try one of the following commands:
Command+Opt+H
Command+Opt+Click the desktop
