Mac OSX Command-tab tips

Just a few tips on using command-tab on OSX (10.7-Lion). While holding command-tab:

  • You can use the arrow keys to move left-right through the icon list
  • You can press up arrow to see windows associated with an app
  • Once in the windows mode (up arrow), you can continue to command-tab through application windows
  • You can use command + tilda (key above tab) to browse through all windows.
  • In some applications you can access history in this way (e.g. TextMate)
  • Command-Q will close a window

There are heaps more, that I’m sure I’ll discover (in the usual Apple way) but these have been quite helpful so far.
