Mac OS 10.6.6: Quick access to the desktop

April 2018

Under Mac OS 10.6.6, we can quickly access the desktop by simultaneously pressing Fn + F11 . But we can also configure the system to access the desktop by pressing a single key as the right command key (cmd), or better yet just passing the mouse over a corner of the screen.

To do this:
  • Click on the block located in the upper left corner and select System Preferences> Exposé and Spaces "
  • Under "Active Screen Corners" are 4 options, open the one in the corner and use the drop down menu to select the item to be accessed, for example on the right lower left and select "Desktop"
  • Thereafter to access the Desktop just pass the mouse over the bottom right corner of the screen
