How to Reveal the Dock and Menu Bar When Using Full Screen Apps in Lion [Mac]

Lion full screen dock reveal

Here’s a quick tip for you Lion users out there. If you’re a fan of full screen apps, you may miss having quick access to the dock and menu bar. They appear to be gone, but they’re really not. Here’s how to use them.

As Cult of Mac points out, all that you need to do is move your mouse pointer to the edge of the screen that contains your dock, and then give a little “push.” The dock will appear after a brief pause. For the menu bar, simply move your pointer past the top of the screen, and the menu bar will appear.

Do you like full screen mode? I use it constantly on my MacBook Air, and swipe between full screen apps. Do you have any full screen tips to share?
