Microsoft Instant Viewer: I Didn’t Know They Had Apple’s Exposé.


I wrote a few days ago that I’d bought a Microsoft Arc keyboard and mouse (highly recommended, by the way). Today I decided to grab Microsoft’s official software for them, instead of just using the generic stuff even though it seemed pretty full-featured. I figured maybe there’d be a surprise or two. 

While most of the settings are identical to the standard stuff, I noticed an option for the buttons called “Instant Viewer”. So I press the button and get the image above. It’s just like Apple’s Exposé (below).


For all I know Microsoft’s had this feature for ages, but since I like Exposé I’ll take it where I can get it on my Windows PCs. Sweet!
