I have OS X 10.8.5. I typically have several windows of some applications open on more than one desktop. When using App Expose, it shows all of the open windows of the current application on all Desktops. Mission Control shows all open windows, regardless of application, on the current desktop but the windows are overlapping. I want to have a way to show just the windows, without overlapping, of the current application on the current desktop.

    No, I still don't know how to do I what I asked about? It seems bizarre to me that this feature is not the standard available features given what we can already do with Mission Control and App Expose. Feb 12 '15 at 13:49

    I'm using El Capitan and I'm experiencing this behavior. I'm looking for a solution too. I tried the thing described at cultofmac.com/222200/… and it didn't do anything. Sep 7 '16 at 15:12

^ + will show all the windows of the current app regardless of their desktop (without overlapping)

And if you want to show all the windows(can be of diff apps) of your current desktop without overlapping then uncheck the Group windows by applicaiton check box and your mission control will not overlap the windows

P.S. I have 10.9.4 installed.

  • @Rathore, when I try that it still shows windows from other desktops. It seems to be the same thing as App Expose, which I am guessing is what Application Windows is. Aug 5 '14 at 4:18
  • So you want to show all the windows of current desktop without overlapping them, right? Aug 5 '14 at 4:20
  • Yes. Do you have that application open on other desktops? If so, then perhaps I need to upgrade. Aug 5 '14 at 4:22
  • Ben I have updated my answer. Aug 5 '14 at 4:25

    Yes I know. I don't understand how what I am asking for is not a built-in option. Why wouldn't you use, say, safari windows on several desktops along with other applications? Aug 5 '14 at 5:42
