Hello everyone, I'm a mac newbie. I just bought a new MBP 13 inch. I've looked up the keyboard shortcut of Option-Command-M to minimize all windows, but it doesn't seem to work....Anyone have any help on this one?

Hello,
I what way doesn't it work?
The minimize all windows command minimizes all windows of the currently active application (The one in the foreground).
Other windows belonging to other applications will not get minimized.

Okay, like right now my screen has firefox open and my itunes window is also open. It's a bit smaller so I can see all of my itunes window and part of my firefox window. But when I press the keyboard shortcut nothing happens. My issue is what if I had a lot of windows open and wanted to get back to my "clean" desktop fast. Isn't there a keyboard shortcut to do this? I'm sorry I forgot to mention that, I'm running snow leopard.

Thanks, but I thought expose was about "handling" multiple virtual desktops only.


Nevermind, it's spaces that does that...Thanks for your help.
