    Command + tilder goes in that list backwards when the little window is up

    also command tilde switches between active windows within an application ... one of my favorite uses is photoshop

    That doesn't work for me. :(

    (Yes, I'm using 10.3)

    -------------------------

    Cmd + A here. I guess someone at Apple didn't account for AZERTY (French) keyboards. :( :mad: :mad:

    Use command-shift-left arrow and command-shift-right arrow

    You can also use Cmd + Tab to hide applications. Just hit 'h' when tabbed. This even works with apps that don't support the Cmd + h short cut for hidding them.

    I just assigned that to my Cocoa Gestures (up-left and up-right). along with minimize and close, back/forth, close tab, new tab, and quit (close window is on my mouse).

    you can use it in any cocoa program like safari. but not carbon like finder or IE. check it:here. it's dope.


    peace.

    Also, holding shift during cmd-tab or cmd-tilde goes in the opposite direction.
