    Dunno if this is a repost or what, but hit shift while you use expose or minimize a window.

    Also...I was messing around and I screen captured just a window...I don't know how I did it...can someone tell me how to do that?

    Shift + Command + 4. The cursor will turn into crosshairs. Click and drag and whatever's in that block when you release will be saved as a .pdf image on the desktop. Or, instead of clicking and dragging the mouse, just hit the space bar and the crosshairs will turn into an icon of a camera. Mouse over the window you want captured (it will hilight) and hit the mouse button. That whole window will be saved as a .pdf image.
