Is it possible to use the windows shown in Mission Control?

For example, let's say I have Safari window opened and I want to scroll the page up/down while in Mission Control - is that possible?

If it isn't possible - do you know an app that can do something similar?

EDIT: I should point out that when you focus on a window in Mission Control and you press Space, it enlarge the window. (not what I want, but it's useful feature of Mission Control).

  • dont think so. as far as I know what you are seeing there is more like an image than the window itself, so you have to focus on it / come out of mission control to interact with it. – jammypeach Aug 9 '12 at 15:33

The only things you can do with them are move them to other desktops, select them from groups to bring them to the forefront, or drag files/copied text into them.

Good question. I've wondered about this myself too. Hypothetically it should be possible, since the window views are updated normally even while using Mission Control. In fact, in Tiger I was sometimes able to enter keyboard input into the top window if I held down a key while using Expose. However, I don't think the Mission Control service is programmed to send mouse input to the windows, so unless a talented developer writes an app of some kind, it doesn't seem to be possible with the current version of Mission Control.
