Hello,

I just switched over from snow leopard to lion through the app store download.
After that, I decided to wipe my macbook pro clean to factory setting (into snow leopard again) then reinstall lion to free up some space and what not.

Prior to the re-install, I had 4 desktops on Mission control, but the second time around, I only have 1. What just happened? Does anyone know how to fix this?
Help would be greatly appreciated!!!
QUOTE Thanks

When you're in Mission Control - move your cursor to the top right hand side and you'll have a plus sign pop up - hit the plus sign to add however many more screens you want.

Hovering your cursor over empty extra screens and you'll get an X in the corner to close that window.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
