Tips & Tricks

Most Mac users will be used to using Command+Tab to switch applications, but this little interface is more flexible than it seems at first. For a start, if you bring it up, then keep holding Command and hover your cursor over the icons (or press the ” and ‘ keys), whichever app is highlighted when you release Command is the one you’ll switch to.
Also, when you’ve got an app highlighted, you can do a few other things: press Q to quit an app instantly; press H to hide an app from view; or press the up or down arrows to see the highlighted app’s open windows in Mission Control. Finally, if an app has windows that have been minimised, switch to it, but hold Option when you release Command – the minimised windows will all reappear back from the Dock.
