Whats this F3 on the Macbook pro 13" with MacOs Mavericks on it? If I press it, there is my desktop big and above from it, my open programs with thumbnail. But this is feature is senseless, because from there I cant switch through my programs with shortcuts.


  • Ah..I see...I dont need a mouse anymore lol

  • Nah, you dont understand. I'm a developer and I switched from Windows + VirtualBox to Mac. Thats because I'm asking here...I dont know anything about Mac. But I see now...I press FN+F3 and can easily switch through apps with the touchpad.

  • I do understand. Whether you are a developer or not doesn't chagne the fact that you are asking about a feature of OS X which is not programming specific / related.

That is called "Mission Control"

If you prefer to use the keyboard rather than the mouse to switch to a different workspace, you can use control + or control +
