When you command+tab to an application that is minimized it doesn't bring it forward, is it possible to make it so it gets restored?

  • I don't think this is possible unless you want to hack it by creating a script that always runs and checks if the front application has a minimized widow. I can write an Applescript that would do this if you want ? Otherwise, have you tried hiding the window/app instead of minimizing it ? (command+H) – Kassym Dorsel Oct 26 '11 at 14:03

With the minimized application selected, start holding the ⌥ alt key before you release the ⌘ cmd key.

  • Well the certainly works in brining the window forward, though a pre-requisite is that I need to be aware the window is minimized to begin with which is to bad. – Kit Sunde Oct 26 '11 at 16:12
