How to make it easy to view your desktop

April 18, 2011 in Mac OS X

After a couple videos about the App Store and a brief hiatus, here is a follow-on video to How to change your desktop background.

In this video, you’ll see a handy setting called “Hot Corners” that will let you perform some basic but handy actions by simply moving your cursor into one of the screen corners. I show you how to use this feature to temporarily hide all your windows so you can see your desktop.

But don’t stop there. Try some of the other options. I’ve assigned actions to all four of my screen corners.

Start Screen Saver | Disable Screen Saver - Desktop | Dashboard

Here are my Hot Corners settings. Try a few combinations and see what layout works best for you.
