I am working with an older relative who has been on windows for many years. She has a difficult/poor memory when it comes to computers.
She could easily link open applications with the text and boxes at the bottom of the screen. She would minimize something it would instantly disappear she would move her cursor back to the box and reopen the window.
This box helps explain the association that she always has had.
We bought her a Mac. She likes many parts about it. It syncs with her iphone etc...
She can't learn the dock. I am afraid we might need to move her back to Windows. I've tried explaining to her Command+Tab and how she can switch back and forth between minimized applications, but she can't stand it. I've tried explaining her how to minimize in the corner and tried minimizing applications to icon, but no luck.
Is there an application to display a list? I'm not looking for alternative techniques for understanding. She really needs a list, not a dock.
Preferably it would work look similar to Windows Dock.
Having used applications like Quicksilver before, and knowing the ingenuity and geniuses in the Mac community it feels like someone could create something like this.
