When I want to switch between windows using Cmd+Tab it does not work with hidden or minimized windows. I can see the icons of these windows in the application switcher but choosing them does nothing. How can I get this to work again?
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 ! )
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.
On your Mac,
- Navigate to System Preferences
- Go to Mission Control
- Uncheck "When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application"
Try using the cmd+tab now.
tell application "Slack" to reopen (activate)
Or try my app Command-Tab Plus, in addition to proper work with hidden or minimized apps has many convenient features that are not efficiently implemented in the built-in MacOs App's switcher
For example, there were discussed the problems of Mac Os X apps switcher
Show only apps that are in the current space
HyperSwitch Does the trick : https://bahoom.com/hyperswitch
I tested it. It needs to be updated. It's free. When I Cmd+Tab on minimized app it's open!
My symptoms.. CommandTab would toggle the heading bar for each application but only some windows for the application would show up.
The suggestion above: On your Mac,
Navigate to System Preferences Go to Mission Control Uncheck "When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application" Try using the CommandTab now.
Was already in place on my Mac. I did the opposite and now CommandTab works perfectly.
