I really like having applications in full screen mode and switch between them using the 3 finger swipe feature.

But can I have a shortcut for it? Maybe like command + -> , something like this?

  • is the Ctrl-Left or Right Arrow not working for you ? – Ruskes Jun 23 '14 at 8:46

That would be the

Ctrl-Left or Right Arrow

to slide between full screen applications.

control and control do this by default.

Check under System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Mission Control.

Also, you may want to try:

CTRL + Up/Down Arrow

That's what you get for a 3 fingers slide.

fn + Left = "fn" Mac Key + Right = 4 finger swipe left or right = Moves to other desktop. Apps that are in full screen will be put on other desktops.

I just realised this. When working on multiple monitors, the shortcut Ctrl + Left/Right Arrow will work on the screen with the mouse pointer in it.

For example, if my mouse pointer is on the Mac screen, the shortcut will switch full screen apps opened on my Mac not on the externally connected monitor. This despite my keyboard cursor being present on the external monitor.

  • Yes this was included in OS X Mavericks I think, separating the desktops for each monitor. – wide_eyed_pupil Sep 1 '18 at 6:35

You can also assign applications to particular "desktops" or using desktop numbers.
