Some times I have apps opened with more than one windows, like Chrome. How can I see in the Dock one icon per each windows (even they are of the same app) that I have open?

Would be nice know how to switch using command+tab or something like that between all the windows opened.

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 spread out so you can see them.

Cmd ⌘ F3 will toggle desktop view only.

Ctrl ⌃ F3 will show all windows of only the frontmost app *[this is likely to be the closest to what you need.]

Shift ⇧ F3 will do the same as just F3 … only really really slowly [for presentations etc]

Opt ⌥ F3 will bring up Mission Control prefs, where you can tweak other behaviour.

You can also go directly to a given tab by right-clicking the app icon in the Dock, though it only shows the frontmost tab's title for each window.

  • Thanks for your reply. Is really frustrating don't have this feature on Mac.

    Ahh… a late thought, I'll add to the answer - you can go to a specific window if you right click the icon in the Dock - but the label only shows the frontmost tab's title

  • Yes, already realize that. Thanks again, I'm really impressed that OS X don't have this feature, very uncomfortable ;)

  • Horses for courses, I guess - personally even on Windows I consolidate to stop it doing the, imo, irritating one-window-per-icon thing ;)

The dock does not shows the windows but the applications.

But once you choose an application you can switch among windows with command+`

To see all the open windows you can use exposé: press F10 to show all the windows of the current application or F9 for all the windows. You can also configure a gesture in the system preferences.

  • Thanks for your reply. So no way in Mac of have an easy to access list of all the windows I have opened? or a shortcut to switch between all the windows no matter if they are of the same app or not?
