There is another question here on Ask Different that answer this question: Keyboard shorcut to switch focus between multiple displays on OS X 10.9.5 + Here's the quick summary: There are some utilities (window managers) that allow you to assign a keyboard shortcut to the focus of a specific monitor. They are as follows (links provided): Catchmouse (No ...

You could also make a screenshot of the application. Then set that as the desktop wallpaper for that space.

The list of spaces is stored in the following file. /Users/YOURUSERNAME/Library/Preferences/com.apple.spaces.plist For example on a machine with the dashboard and three desktops: <key>Spaces</key> <array> <dict> <key>ManagedSpaceID</key> <integer>3</integer> <key>id64</...

I'm with @Tetsujin on this one. I never use fullscreen apps. However, you could do what you want with Total Spaces 2. Make sure to check the compatibility info below the download button. Let's say you use 3 fullscreen apps: Close the full screen apps and create 3 extra spaces. Once you got those spaces, give them shortcuts In Total Spaces 2. Once ...

I'm afraid it cannot be done natively. The closest you can achieve is to jump the last regular desktop with Ctrl ⌃ [num] then Ctrl ⌃ → from there. The difficulty is that fullscreen apps don't have a Space number, so you cannot add a shortcut key. My personal solution is to simply never use fullscreen apps, I find them more trouble than they're ...

I had to fix the script a bit more. For files or folders ending in the letter 't', it would also delete that letter. And the call to check if the file exists wasn't working properly so changed "target_name" to $target_name and it works now. #!/bin/bash ...

I've found a method that works. I noticed that double-clicking on a dock icon will switch to a full screen application's space, even if "When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application" is turned off in Mission Control's system preferences. It's possible to make an AppleScript that utilizes this, even if the dock is ...

Another answer: If you have your System Preferences set to switch to a Space with an active window when switching to an app, you can use Alfred (and probably the built-in Spotlight program). If you can push the keyboard shortcut for Spotlight and enter the first few letters of the app, you could probably get very fast at switching.

Try pressing Cmd-Ctrl-F at the same time while you're in an application

Partial answer, as I'm on my phone this week. If you use apps maximised rather than full screen, with both the menu bar & dock set to auto-hide, then you can simply assign each app to its own Space & use Ctrl/number to switch directly. The downside is you still have the window surround, the upside is you remain in complete control.

If the goal is to switch directly to a specific full screen app quickly, and NOT specifically to do so without taking your hands off the keyboard, you could use hotcorners or the three-finger swipe (if on a laptop/Magic Trackpad). I set lower right corner of my screen to trigger Mission Control; when I need to switch, I hit that corner, then select the space ...

To do this: push control and < or control and →. You can slightly change the functionality if you have "Automatically rearrange Spaces based on most recent use" checked or unchecked. (System Preferences > Mission Control) There is no other way to do this that I know of. I have used a few third party apps. I am sure there exists some third party app ...

You can't. You can change the speed of switching into Mission Control. To do that in terminal Run: defaults write com.apple.dock expose-animation-duration -int 0; killall Dock To switch back to defaults run: defaults delete com.apple.dock expose-animation-duration; killall Dock

The workarounds are fairly well described on the page you linked... Disable 'Displays have separate Spaces' in System Preferences > Mission Control. This will re-enable the drag action, if you hit the extreme left or right of the screen pair. Grab the title bar & use the appropriate shortcut key Ctrl ⌃ [Number] - though this needs setting up in ...
