Slow-Mo Mac OS X Expose Shortcut Key

The Function Keys F3 – F9 in Mac OS X gives you access to the various Exposé “views”. For example, pressing F3 on my MacBook shows all open application windows. (Depending on your Mac, the function keys may be mapped differently. Check System Preferences – Exposé & Spaces for a full list.)

While trying to figure out a keyboard shortcut, I happened upon a neat little “feature” of Leopard. By holding down the Shift key while pressing a function key gives a nice little slo-mo version of the Exposé transition.

I know that’s not a great explanation, but give it a try and you’ll see what I mean.
