Is there a shortcut to minimize an open application?
hold down the apple key and press "H"
Command-H hides the app, whereas Command-M minimizes the window to the dock.
too bad there is not an easy way to expand a window once it has been sent to the dock without using the mouse.
apple+m is minimizing the open app to the dock then apple+L will reopen the app from the dock ...
Maybe I'm just innept, but this didn't do jack on my comp. I got the minimize just fine but this one seemingly didn't do anything.
Ctrl+F3 lets you reactivate a minimised window. (If it doesn't work, hit ctrl+F1 first to activate full keyboard access)
Cmd+L works for me too when the application is active.
hold apple key then L try that .. apple + L works on my mac the L doesn't need be capped to work
Are you in the finder? Then command-L makes an alias. Otherwise, it will unminimize the selected app. Command-tab to get to the app you want, then command-L to unminimize.
Command-L does not work for me to maximise the window from the dock. I am not in the Finder and I have tried both with and without full keyboard access.
What I have noticed is that Command-L will maximise the window, but only if that shortcut has a function in the app itself. For example, in Safari, Command-L opens a location. In System Preferences, Command-L will show all preferences. In both of these apps, the window will maximise, but in others it won't.
