For those running Tiger, there is a feature for which I can't for the life of me figure out a purpose.

If you hit F9, F10 or F11, your screen pans out to varying degrees, allowing you to see all the windows in your present application, all the windows you have up total or pushing all windows aside so you see the desktop. Well if you hit the shift key while doing it, it moves significantly slower. My friends and I can't figure out when this would be useful. Any experience?

They did that because it just LOOKS cool.

When you have a bunch of graphics open in separate windows (like a bunch of Illustrator or Photoshop files) it can be easy to spread them out and click on the desired one. It's either that or switch to the app in the Dock and them grab the right file through the menu.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Right, but why would you need to do it slower?

I think CRZ's explanation is the answer.

You (and he) are probably right. Why anyone would need to make shift+F11 functional anyway seems silly to me.

CRZ's right -- they actually did this simply because it looks cool. Expose (the name of that effect) is supposedly one of Steve Jobs favorite features in OSX, so they did this to show it off.

I forgot it even existed until you mentioned it, so thanks!

I'd recommend the same thing for you; disable everything for a day and see if there is still a problem. If you don't have the issue, add them back one at a time until you do have the problem.
