How to Exit Mac Mission Control

Just like opening up your Mac Mission Control the thoughtful creators at Apple have provide us with a selection of easy exit options…

Mac Mission Control

 Exit Mac Mission Control Option 1 – If you love the fun fingerfy trackpads swipes then this is the exit mission control method for you! Instead of swiping upwards to open, now swipe three fingers across your Trackpad or Magic Mouse in a ‘Downwards’ motion. This will return your screen back to normal and exit mission control.

 Exit Mac Mission Control Option 2 – For some strange reason this option does not always work for me, but if it does for you then it will be the fastest and easiest option their is…

Using two fingers double tap (remember not a double click, just a tap) on your track pad or Magic mouse.

 Exit Mac Mission Control Option 3 – When you are faced with Mission control and all of its open apps/ windows/ desktops displayed etc, if there is one you wish to proceed with just click on it and it will enlarge and automatically exit mission control.
