    Is there any way to have cmd-tab on my center monitor instead of on the right. I realize my dock is on the right side, but does that mean I'm stuck to having the cmd-tab menu always on the 3rd monitor? Real pain in the ass. Tell me this isn't just "how it is" with Mavericks.

    After some experimentation, the cmd-tab menu seems to follow the dock left and right (i.e., it's on the left screen when the dock is left and the right screen when the dock is right). When the dock is on the bottom, it appears on the screen that has the menu bar in Display Preferences > Arrangement.

    So if you have three displays and the dock is on the right, I think you're stuck with the cmd-tab menu on the right display. As an alternative, try using Mission Control more, LaunchPad, or a keyboard utility like LaunchBar.
