Add one or more “Desktops”

Why would I want extra “Spaces”?  It’s an easy way to expand and organize the work that you are doing on your single screen.
Say I want have my “Stickies” open at all times- I don’t necessary want my stickies cluttering up all my view while I’m checking email, or working on a word doc.So on one “Space” I will have all my stickies open and in my second “Space” is my active applications.


  1. To see your Desktops, either press the Mission Control key on your keyboard or swipe up on your trackpad using three or four fingers.
  2. Move the pointer toward the upper-right corner of your screen. (If you keep your Dock on the right side of the screen, move the pointer toward the upper-left corner.)
