    10.7 - Mission Control Question
    After much fumbling with Mission Control, I've come to the conclusion that just one simple change could make it feel much less clumsy as a replacement for Exposť. And then I thought, "Hey, maybe there's a way to do this and I just don't know the keyboard shortcut." So here I am. Does someone know whether there is a keyboard shortcut/swipe/clicky pattern that will do the following:

    - When just hovering over an application window cluster in Mission Control, using the shortcut will make the Mac jump into application-specific Exposť for that application

    It would make going into a real Exposť-ified workflow from Mission Control a lot smoother - needing to jump out of Mission Control to normal view when I want to use application-specific Exposť just feels sloppy, and the up-scroll/outward finger explosion shortcut to spread out the windows just a smidgen isn't as helpful as Apple would like to think when the number of windows you're dealing with is large enough. Does anyone know if there is a way to do this that I'm overlooking? Thanks in advance.

    not sure if this is anything close to what you are after but...

    If you are in Expose and you see say 5 safari windows all close together, if you spread your thumb and 3 fingers out they will separate so you can see the individual windows of the app easily.

    4 Fingers scrolling down will put it in App Specific Expose. You probably know that. You want to do that while in MC. Only thing close is what I posted above. For me it's enough so I can see the separate windows of an app and know which one I want.

    Unfortunately, as I mentioned in the OP, the four finger explosion isn't really cutting it for me when the number of windows in the cluster is large enough. I should probably put in a feature request. Mission Control as a concept would work better with this since it'd mean being able to exercise all the window management options right from that screen...
