If you're on a laptop, you'll need to hit the fn key to get to your F9 functionality. The fn key is the one just to the left of ctrl on the left hand side.Sweener88 said:when i press my F9 key it dims the light on the keyboard, nutting happens with the windows
Command + Tilde also goes backwards through the open applications list after you press Command + Tab.bousozoku said:Not only does Command-Tab work, but Command-Shift-Tab works in the opposite direction and once you're in the application switcher, you can also use the mouse to select an application quickly.
Huh, I wonder why they have 2 key commands that do the same thing. I use apple-shift-tab which does the same thing and makes more logical sense to me as shift is often used as a "reverse" modifier, for example apple-shift-z does a redo after you just did an undo.peterparker said:Command + Tilde also goes backwards through the open applications list after you press Command + Tab.
Fewer keys switched, for certain. I still like the combination of command-(shift)-tab with the left hand and mouse with the right to navigate a lot of running applications.motulist said:

Not for me. Perhaps if I knew ahead of time what the order of applications in the list was I could go with that. I'll take the simpler option with the fewer keys. I honestly didn't like it the first time I tried it. But it is quite simple now.motulist said:
Yes, gotta love that. Always get frustrated on Windoze at work when I try to do it...mkrishnan said:Two things that you can do... at least one of which is different from Windows, are:
After you press Apple-Tab (or Apple-Shift-Tab), you can use the right/left arrow keys to navigate between applications in the list that pops up, and you can also mouse over the list to select an app. Mostly no great reason to do this, but occasionally useful.
