Say I have two windows of a browser running, how can I switch between those two windows? like Command + Tab?

⌘ Command + `

will cycle between windows of the current application when using i.a. US keyboard.

  • ⌘`: Move focus to next window (in application)
  • ⌃F4: Move focus to active or next window (visible windows on the current space)

(On the U.S. locale and keyboard layout.)

  • +1 The keyboard shortcuts window will provide the correct answer regardless of the keyboard layout. Nov 5, 2011 at 9:32
  • Good answer, but a note for others--this won't to change to the other window if that window is full screen. Say, for example, two chrome windows, both full screen.

To have a more complete way of switching between windows in all apps simiilar to the Windows way get a third party application like Witch or Optimal Layout both are now in the App Store.

Both of these allow ⌘ Command + Tab will switch between all windows in all apps in a last used order (or can be configured to another order)
