Get the most out of Spaces Part 3: Warp!

New OSX 10.5 feature Spaces allows users to manage their workspace by dividing application windows any way you want.

We recently mentioned how keyboard shortcuts can help you switch easily between each of your Spaces but there is an even easier way to do this.

Warp, a free download and preference pane, allows to switch between all of their spaces using their mouse instead of the keyboard.

You can setup your Warp preference pane to switch to a new space when you move your mouse to the edge of the screen. Or preview your space before switching to it:

Warp offers the ability to display a live preview of a space when you move the mouse to the edge of the screen, allowing you to see what you have on another space before actually switching to it. Clicking the preview will then warp you to that space.

Once you’ve installed Warp on your system, open System Preferences and you’ll notice the new Warp preference option under Other.

Select it and then customize how you’d like Warp to work on your system. When you’re finished and Warp is active, move your mouse to the edge of your screen and see yourself Warp to the next Space.

If you’re already a fan of Spaces, Warp is a must have addition. If you’re still getting use to Spaces, Warp may just make it that much easier to use.

How do you use Spaces?
