[ubuntu-uk] How do I turn off viewing all windows zoomed out?

There is an option somewhere in Ubuntu that I set a while ago that means 
that when I move my mouse to the left side of the screen, all opens 
windows are shown small in a kind of grid on the screen. I can then 
click on a window to zoom into that one to use normally.

However, I have completely forgotten how to make or change the setting. 
I want to change it or switch it off, as every time I move my mouse near 
the top left of the screen to access a File menu in a program, 
everything zooms out and I have to select the window of the program I 
want. If I keep moving the mouse just a few pixels too far to the left, 
it all zooms out again.

How do I access the setting for this? I have looked through everything I 
can think of, including Compiz settings and System>Preferences>Appearance.#

I am using Ubuntu 9.04.
