Hot Corners Not Working

Issue/Question

The desktop hot corner doesn't work in full screen applications.

Environment

  • macOS

Cause

The window is in Full Screen mode. When windows are in full screen mode there is no desktop behind them to show.

Resolution

When programs are in full-screen mode, they are moved to their own space and there is no desktop behind them to display. If you need to work with files on the desktop frequently, consider maximizing the window without going full screen.
