Hot Corners can be configured on a Mac device for a range of uses. Each corner of the screen can be set up as a shortcut for a different function, such as putting the device to sleep or hiding all windows. A full list of available functions can be found below.
To access the set-up page for the Hot Corners, open launchpad then launch System Preferences.
From there, click on the ‘Desktop & Screen Saver’ option.
Navigate to the ‘Screen Saver’ tab at the top of the window, then open ‘Hot Corners…’ from the button at the bottom of the window.
Here, you can allocate different options from the drop-down menus to assign a corner of the screen to a different function. Most can be reversed by pointing the mouse in the allocated corner again.
Hot Corners Configurations:
- Start Screen Saver
- Disable Screen Saver
- Application Windows
- Mission Control
- Notification Center
