I use Command + Tab and Command + ` often when switching between apps/windows.

I also have multiple Spaces that I typically use. I've found that using Command + ` only cycles through windows in the current Space. Is there a way to have it cycle through all windows in an application, not just the one in the current space?

I found that Command + Option + (n) (where (n) is an integer) switches to a specific window of an application and handles windows across spaces fine, but I don't really want to have to remember which window is which number when switching around.

  • Welcome to Ask Different :) If you can consider using Mouse/Trackpad, I find Application Windows Hot Corner super useful. It show all the app windows open across all the Spaces along with minimized windows.

  • CMD+ Option+(n) opens first bookmark of Safari. Is that expected behaviour?

    @ankiiiiiii I think it might actually be application specific. That's how it works in Terminal (you can see the designation for each window in the list under Window), but I don't see those same designations when I'm in Chrome. So my "solution" isn't even universal.

  • Pitty there is no such option. In keyboard maestro, it seems that it doesn't work too

  • Spaces was never meant to be used that way. It's designed for 'one app, one space' not spread over multiple Spaces. Yes, it's a limitation, but as Spaces development was pretty much abandoned with the advent of the truly [imnso] useless fullscreen, I don't see it will ever be improved. See apple.stackexchange.com/questions/193937/… which has some [inconvenient] workarounds.
