    Default openSUSE 11.1/KDE 4.1.3 Desktop Feature


    Hi,

    On the KDE 4.1.3 desktop open applications are also shown as an icon in
    the control bar. When putting the mouse over the icon a little window
    pops-up above the icon showing the content of the full screen of this
    application. Last night I did something with the mouse and the desktop
    disappeared being replaced by small versions of the screen content of
    all open applications, which is almost like 'Spaces' on OSX Leopard.

    Now I wonder what I have done to invoke this nice little feature. I
    couldn't reproduce it despite lots of wild mouse handling.

    Can you help?

    Cheers.

    H.

    Ok. Thanks for your reply. But how do I invoke the displaying of all the
    preview screens?

    Is there an area on the desktop I have to click in or a mouse gesture?

    Thanks.

    H.

    On mine, I get an 'expose' (previews of all open windows) type effect
    when I shove my mouse to the top left corner, I can't just put the
    cursor in the top left but actually have to shove it up there as if I'm
    trying to push it off the screen. Perhaps to stop it happening
    accidentally?

    I'm on KDE4.1.something from the Factory 11.0 repos, and I have a nice
    tab in Desktop Settings for configuring screen edges to do useful stuff.
    It also works off a keyboard shortcut.

    Not sure but I think the effect might be called Present Windows. Its
    nice though eh?

    Edit: The one above shows me windows from *current* desktop, another
    one in the top right corner gives me something equally funky (but
    differently so) with windows from *all* desktops <- figure this one is
    what you mean by 'Spaces'.

    Cheers.

    I think it did indeed happen when I moved the mouse pointer across the
    screen diagonally. But I tried moving it from bottom left to top right
    in order to reproduce the popping up of the preview windows.

    I'll try again once I get home.
