Editors' Review

Looking for an Expose emulator to port that cool app-switching feature from the Mac to Windows? DExposE2 is probably about as close as you can get to a direct copy, giving both XP and Vista three choices for jumping between open programs.

Using the F9 key, you'll be able to minimize your apps to fit on the screen, then choose one to bring to the front by hitting Tab or left-clicking your mouse. F10 highlights only the active windows belonging to the application currently running in the foreground. F11 reveals the desktop by shunting all active windows off to the right side of your screen, visible only as a thin and unidentifiable bar.

DExposE2 lets you set up other hot keys or move your mouse to the corner of the screen to activate, and there's also a Windows Taskbar icon you can use to access it's features--but the hot keys are more than adequate. Other customizations include setting a background image, determining the behavior of previously minimized windows, and customizing program labels. Three levels of graphical quality should allow those with less RAM to scale the program to their needs. Although some crashes have been reported, DExposE2 worked flawlessly for us.

"WARNING!: DO NOT DOWNLOAD!"

September 12, 2011  |  By ExtremeFaithInJesus

 |  Version: DExposE2 1.0

Pros

works okay if you don't plan on ever removing it.

Cons

It was using some of the shortcut keys I needed for other programs so I decided to uninstall. This resulted in multiple computer errors! 1. error message on startup from then on, 2. My mouse won't stay still. 3. I can't change desktop bg, and more

Summary

DO NOT DOWNLOAD!

"It works... on paper anyway"

May 30, 2009  |  By HighlyEvolved

 |  Version: DExposE2 1.0

Pros

gives you an idea of what expose is like
can group same programs or all of them at the same time
can be disabled easily

Cons

freezes to often
slugish
not very useful in real life

Summary

While it works on paper, and it looks just like expose, you will find that it takes anywhere from 5 to 6 seconds to load the first time you click it whith 10+ windows open. This is nowhere close to the half a second expose does it in a mac. It's fun for some time as a novelty, but as a piece of software to make your life easier? keep looking. It lacks the performance and agility to actually be useful.

"Does what it says it will do."

December 03, 2008  |  By savaii64

 |  Version: DExposE2 1.0

Pros

The Hot Keys work very effectively.

Cons

The Hot Corners on the other hand, fail to work for me :(

Summary

It is efficient at what it sets out to do, just don't expect to be able to use hot corners like a MAC can.
