Lion "expose" problem.

Just reloaded Lion on my late 2010 MBA.

I have set the hot corners to:

Top left @ Application Windows and top right @ Desktop.

Mousing top right gets me the Desktop, BUT mousing top left makes everything disappear behind the current active app.

What could I have missed in System Preferences?

Thanks!

What are you expecting to happen when you switch to Application Windows?
That choice should show the windows for the application in front, and all others disappear.
If you want to show All Windows, then change the setting to Mission Control.
Or, do you want some other option?

Thanks, done it.

It was not set like that before though. Before, in Hot Corners, I simply set upper left to Application windows and flicking the mouse up there showed me everything.

Anyway, that's sorted and thanks again.

Maybe your previous installation was a "leftover" setting from an upgrade from Snow to Lion? Then, cleared by a clean install this time?

It was indeed an upgrade installation before and, yes, now a totally clean install.

I wonder what other changes might laid in wait then?
