    No, but you can set up Exposé to activate when the mouse cursor is moved to a corner of the screen (System Preferences > Exposé & Spaces > Exposé > Active Screen Corners).

  • No, there is no Exposé function on the new Magic Mouse. I have talked with two different Apple technical support people and they both said no. Sad!

  • No, but you can put the Expose' application in the dock, and control it from there very quickly, and very easily. Or, as many others have suggested, set it up in of your active corners.

  • It is true that natively the mouse does not support the expose function, but I believe that if you search for 'MagicPrefs' on the download section of Apples website your problem will be sorted.

  • No it does not. Instead there are customizable gestures you can create in System Preferences to create the same function.

  • No, it has no side buttons. This does not preclude some Expose functionality in the drivers and software. However, Apple could also introduce additional gestures in the future to accommodate Expose as it did on multi-touch trackpads.

  • Its no big deal to have no expose button - just make the top right hand corner a hot corner for expose, find it in system prefs and select all windows in the top right corner (or another corner if you wish) Its much better than using the side buttons. Just flick the mouse pointer to the corner and back - its brilliant!!

  • You can also set Expose to use the "secondary mouse button" if you never right click. If you do right click all the time I would just settle for using F9, F10, etc for Expose.

  • No, but you can set up the secondary mouse button to open expose if you go to System Preferences>mouse and activate the secondary button and then go to System Preferences>Expose & Spaces and in the middle portion of the screen set the secondary mouse button to open expose.You have to do it in this order or it won't work. You can also program the secondary mouse button to open dashboard instead at the bottom of this same window in System Preferences.
