    The Open Apple-Tab command (holding down the open apple/command button while tapping tab) switches between open programs.

    I'm wondering if there's a way I can change the Apple-Tab command, in System Preferences, perhaps, so that I can view all open Windows (which is what Alt-Tab does on Windows keyboards). This way, I could switch from Safari, for example, to an AIM window without having to use the mouse to go to the dock. Any suggestions?

    unless you are still using 10.2.x just use F9 to see all of the open windows, it is much more useful than Cmd+Tab

    You could Apple-Tab to the program and then use Apple-Tilde to pick the window.
