I answered a similar question here - cmd-tab behavior on mavericks with multiple displays The Task Switcher does follow the Dock. If the Dock is on screen 1, the Task Switcher will appear on screen 1. If the Dock is on screen 3, the Task Switcher will appear on screen 3. Etc. To make your Dock appear on a screen you can use a couple of methods. Method ...
Try moving your Dock to a different screen in System Preferences > Dock > Position on screen. The Application Switcher will open on the same display as the Dock. You can also quickly move your Dock (and Application Switcher) to another display by hovering your mouse on the very bottom of the desired display for a moment. The Dock will then rise up and ...
This one is a bit tricky : press ⌘ Cmd + ⇥ Tab to show your running apps. Keep holding ⌘ Cmd. press ⇥ Tab until you've selected the app press the ⌥ Option, and let go of the ⌘ Cmd. ( You must release ⌘ Cmd after pressing ⌥ Option ! )
Please let Apple know if you find this behaviour non ideal. Personally I would prefer either of the following behaviours: The Application Switcher is always displayed on the monitor on which the menu bar has been placed under System Preferences → Displays → Arrangement. The Application Switcher is displayed on the display with the active (opaque) menu bar. ...
⌘ Cmd+` works for me with the same versions of Chrome and OS X, so it might be something specific to your installation. You could try temporarily resetting Chrome's preferences or disabling extensions. Or change the shortcut from System Preferences or test if it works on a different account.
Great question! You answered #1 yourself - that is, the Switcher appears on the monitor where the Dock was last shown. To change it, just move the mouse to the bottom of the display that you want to show the Task Switcher on (this will temporarily show the dock on OS X Mavericks, until you move the mouse away from the bottom of the screen). Now the ...
This may seem complicated, although after you've done it a few times and use it regularly you'll have it down. Depending on if you have other windows minimized you may have to tap the left or right arrow keys on the last step to pull up the window you're wanting un-minimized. While holding ⌘ tap tab followed by ← then ↓ twice, then press return ( ...
I am also experiencing the same problems and have posted a thread to the Macbook Pro Apple Forums. While there isn't any answer yet you might be interested in following along that thread. So far the only reliable way to fix it would be to restart the machine. Or to log out and log back in. Neither method is satisfactory.
What you are trying to achieve is not provided by OS X and I don't know if a third-party application would be able to interfere this deeply in the window management. You have two options: (⇧ +) ⌘+→ to switch between apps (⇧ +) ⌘+` to switch between windows of one app in one desktop Option two is configurable in System ...
If you use ⌘+tab to go through your open applications, you should see even minimized ones, but if you select them, they don't automatically maximize/unminize. If you however press the option key after you've selected the desired minimized application but before releasing the ⌘ key with ⌘+tab, the app window that was minimized to the dock ...
It's provided by Dock.app. So you could try osascript -e 'quit app "Dock"' or killall "Dock".
cmd+tab when you mouse-over the dock. The app switcher will move to the display your mouse is on. Found this out by accident... the obvious behaviour would seem to be that the app switcher appears on whatever display the cursor is.
For those using Snow Leopard 10.6.8, these options can be set under the OSX "System Preferences" > Keyboard > "Keyboard Shortcuts" Tab > "Keyboard and Text Input". Apparently, by default Cmd+` is set to "Move focus to next window in appl...". However, this shortcut doesn't work for me because my keyboard is Japanese, and therefore I need to press Shift to ...
You can darken the the background of menu bars in Yosemite using "Dark mode". To enable this go to System Preferences-->General, and check the box next to "Use dark menu bar and Dock".
I ended up getting Alfred's power pack and setup a hotkey there. It's much much faster than the automator service.
If you haven't enabled minimizing windows to the application icon, you can press control-F3 to move focus to the Dock, and then select the window with the arrow keys and press return.
Contexts looks nice, but I've never used it personally. It seems to be similar in functionality with Witch, but it has a more modern (iOS 7-style) design. It does have the ability to map itself to Command+Tab. It costs $9.
Windowflow - free for a limited time and gives some options for different spaces and such. Witch - 12,99 € and has an option that will only show apps in the current space. WindowSwitcher - 3,59 € and it comes very close to your needs, check it out. As far as an native solution to your problem: I don't think there is a setting or command that makes the ...
@Hugo Chrome allows to set up more users to get more "environments" inside your chrome (bookmarks, opened tabs, session and so forth). it's very useful to split your business and private browsing. So, ⌘ Cmd-Shift-M is very useful. :)
Use ⌘ Cmd-Tab to cycle to the desired application and then, while still holding down ⌘ Cmd, press the ↑ or ↓ arrow. This will show the application's windows in Expose. Select the desired window with the arrow keys and press Return to activate it. http://www.macworld.com/article/1152366/commandtabminimizedwindows.html
The apps are not being moved to different desktops, but the desktops are being rearranged. To see the difference, put two apps on a space, then Cmd-Tab to one of the apps. You will end up in a space that contains both apps, although the space will have been renamed and shuffled in the order. To stop this, Open System Preferences Go into Mission Control ...
I've had an identical problem on my 2010 MBP since upgrading to Lion last fall. Here's what I did today that seemed to fix the problem: 1) Go into Macintosh HD and find /Library/colorsync/profiles/displays 2) Move all files in the 'displays' directory into a backup folder on your Desktop 3) Open System Preferences > Displays and click on "Color" for each of ...
It's not free, but you could try Keyboard Maestro and set up some macros. In fact, the first suggestion on their Example Macros page is to set up function keys to switch directly to your most used applications.
I have been able to work around the issue using the free app gfxCardStatus to switch between integrated and discrete graphics on my MBP. It doesn't matter which you use, switching to the other one fixes the problem until next time.
Ctrl click or Right click on the item then select Get Info from the popup menu (or else select the item and select Get Info from the File Menu). When Get Info window is open you can select what app to open it with and choose to open all similiar documents with the new app as well.
Even on a very slow, older Mac, LaunchBar is blazingly fast for me. It does far more than launch apps, but that's the core function of the tool and it's low resource, rock solid dependable, and ready to grow if you want more features.
You must deselect the "Share Windows applications with Mac" option in the Applications pane of your VM's configuration.
App Switcher is controlled by Dock. Whichever display the dock bar is on, so is App Switcher. This applescript is how I reset Dock bar to main display: tell application "System Events" set screen edge of dock preferences to right set screen edge of dock preferences to bottom end tell If you run Dock unhidden/visible, most likely the Dock will make ...

Depending on how your System prefs are set, F3 will do a variety of window-juggling tasks… If Prefs > Keyboard > Keyboard is set to default, with "Use all F1, F2…" unchecked then they will work as stated, if it's checked you will need to add the Fn key to each of these commands. F3 will toggle Mission Control - all windows of all apps & Desktops ...
