If you're like me, you probably have several applications open at once. For example, I often have Excel, TextWrangler, Photoshop CS3, Safari, Firefox,
Tiger Woods PGA Tour '08, and iTunes open at the same time - and that's not including Entourage, Adium, Twitterific, and other apps that are open all the time.
Leopard's Spaces is my favorite new feature. It helps organize application windows. But I sometimes forget to switch to a new Space and I end up with window clutter. Fortunately, you can use Exposé within Spaces to clean up the clutter.
1. Press F8 to see all your Spaces. In this example, all my applications and documents are open in the first Space (I have a second LCD connected to my iMac, which explains the split Spaces). Click on the image to see a full-sized picture.
You can assign applications to specific Spaces. For example, you can assign Chess (or in my case, Tiger Woods PGA Tour '08) to its own dedicated Space. That way, you can quickly switch away from that Space in case your boss/mom/dad/girlfriend/boyfriend/client stops by and bugs you. It also helps you control window clutter.
To assign an application to a Space, go to System Preferences > Exposé & Spaces > Spaces. Click on the + button to make application assignments.
