I have accidentally assigned the shortcut Command` to something undesired, while the shortcut in default was been used to switch between opening windows inside the same currently active app.

How can I get it back to the default state? Thanks for your replies!

Open System Preferences > Keyboard, open the Shortcuts tab and select Keyboard (you should see the option "Move focus to next window").

To re-enable it, either:

  • click the "Restore Defaults" button,
  • or double click the shortcut and set it back to Command` Keyboard settings

    Hi @Ambidextrous, I've expanded your answer with information on how to open to the "Keyboard" window and what to do when you get there. I hope it's OK :-)
