I'm running OS X 10.5.5 Yosemite. What's the shortcut to switch between Chrome Developer Tools (Cmd + Alt + J) and the main Chrome browser window, when both are full screen?

Cmd + ` doesn't work.

The Developer tools seems to register as another instance of Chrome running, so Application switching doesn't work either.



You can use Mission Control (Ctrl+Up) to drag the main Chrome window and the DevTools window to adjacent spaces, if they are not already next to each other. You can use Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right to cycle through spaces.

Mac users will generally keep all related spaces adjacent to each other, in a group, and use Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right to navigate between them.

  • I come from windows background and I am used to alt + tab. Having hard time due to this issue. This is useful though will take time to get used to. – IsmailS Jan 12 '18 at 6:06

    Also, if I use cmd+tab by mistake, it moves chrome and dev tools away from each other and I have to rearrange them again. – IsmailS Jan 12 '18 at 6:08
