    Is this just how the OS works or is there a setting I can configure. I'm used to being able to alt-tab on Windows and open a window and bring it to the front regardless whether it is minimized.

    When I command-tab (or do the four finger thing on Macbook) it sort of opens it. The program bar at the top becomes active for that program but the window doesn't come out of minimize.

    Seems odd. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I just need to get used to Mac and learn another way to do things?

    Hide an application (Cmd + H). Don't minimize.
