On Snow Leopard you could "jump" from the last space to the first space by hitting cmd+right arrow.

How to do this in Mavericks?

I haven't tried it, but the app TotalSpaces2 seems to provide this feature:

In newer versions of macOS they require you to disable SIP when installing.


They don't cycle any more, last to first.

I've found the best solution is to assign a key command to every Space you use & go directly to the one you want.

I use Ctrl/number.

Additional irritation is that Fullscreen apps insert themselves into the 'list' of Spaces, but cannot be called directly.


To accommodate for not cycling anymore, you can enter a command for Switch to Desktop 1, i.e. +shift+.

  • This is not cyclic like the question asked. This does not allow you to be on the last space and press ⌃ + → to cycle back to the first space (at least on Mavericks).
