I'm using MacBook pro 15 with Yosemite 10.10.3. I can't get CMD + Tilde to work. In keyboard shortcuts it appears to be on.

What's the problem here?

    Need more info, pictures... What/where/when... BTW, Cmd/~ can't be done using 2 keys, as it's a shifted character – Tetsujin Aug 6 '15 at 7:34
  • @Tetsujin, in all apps (finder, xcode, safarai, chrome) I can't switch between opened windows. – Anonymous Aug 6 '15 at 7:42
  • Lol, I just plugged in external keyboard and it works; apperantely I used different keyboard layout so the tilde was placed differently on the keyboard. – Anonymous Aug 6 '15 at 7:43
  • Switch between open Windows is Cmd ` not Cmd ~ anyway, glad you figured it out – Tetsujin Aug 6 '15 at 7:44
  • @Tetsujin It's also Cmd + ⇧ + ` (or Cmd + ~). It just goes in reverse order. Just like Cmd + Tab to switch apps, and Cmd + Shift + Tab to switch reverse order. Shift + some shortcut works with a lot of command. Like Undo: Cmd + Z; Redo: Cmd + Shift + Z... – user14492 Aug 6 '15 at 12:10

The tilde key was placed in a different place in the keyboard than the place I'm used to. Works like charm.
