Hello metafilter, Lately I'm becoming more and more of a power user of my computer (Windows 10) and tweaked a lot of things to my liking. And it's been great. Now I am looking for improve my tabs/programs/desktop workflow. Any help? [more inside]
Mike Dillard Exposed Exposed? - I'm not quite sure where to file this, but I discovered this after clicking a random google ad. It appears that this man has literally filled the entire internet with fake exposé websites, videos, you name it. Try going as far into the search results as you can stand - my question is simply, how? (and also, why?)

I use OS X's Expose feature probably 500 times a day. I love it, but when I have more than a couple of applications open, it's hard to tell, say, iTunes apart from Mail.app. Is there an add-on that will place the program's icon over the window when in Expose?
I was recently trying to add a "Recents" stack to my dock in Mac OS 10.5.2 using Terminal. I entered a command, pressed enter, and then restarted the dock. From then on, I could not use the dock anymore, nor Dashboard, Spaces, Expose, or the application switcher. I also noticed that my motion sensors do not work anymore. Everything still works on other accounts on my computer, just not on my administrator account. Any ideas about how to fix this?
I did something to my computer (iMac G5) over a year ago, and now every folder includes a file called ".DS_Store". What is it, and how can I make it invisible again?
I just bought a Wireless Kensington Expert Mouse, and I'm trying to convince myself I like it. Ergonomically, I think it's better for my hand and wrist in the long run, but there is one thing that's really bugging me: I can set keystrokes for any of the buttons, but it only sends the key to the computer when I release the button. I use a Mac, and I have the F9 key programmed in on the trackball for Expose, but this means I can't just hold it, move to the window I want, and release it like I'm able to do on my Logitech mx700. I have to click, move, and click again ("waa", I know). Any suggestions for making this work using Kensington's MouseWorks driver? Are there any third-party apps/drivers out there that could take care of this? Furthermore, does anyone have experience switching from a mouse to a trackball? Did you stay with the trackball, and what merits/flaws do you see in both devices?
