Mis­sion Con­trol has been a fea­ture of macOS since 2011, though its roots go back to Ex­posé, which made its de­but all the way back in 2003 with OS X 10.3 Pan­ther. As the name im­plies, Mis­sion Con­trol acts as the con­trol cen­ter from which you run your Mac. In re­al­ity, you could use your Mac for years with­out ever re­ly­ing upon it, but it’s handy when you need to find that one cru­cial win­dow you’ve lost, or you sim­ply need to get a han­dle on which apps you have run­ning, be­cause it pro­vides an in­stant over­view.

Mis­sion Con­trol has been re­fined over the years, with the big­gest change in re­cent ver­sions be­ing that it spreads out all the win­dows that are open, rather than group­ing them in stacks la­beled with the cor­re­spond­ing app icon. Ad­di­tion­ally, the row of thumb­nails of vir­tual desk­tops, or spa­ces, now only ap­pears when you move the pointer to the top of the screen.

Here you’ll learn how to use Mis­sion Con­trol in macOS Sierra to man­age your apps and desk­top spa­ces, and how you can cus­tomize it in Sys­tem Pref­er­ences.
