    I work with multiple monitors, I like to have the dock pinned to the left (my main monitor). When working on my secondary monitor and I need to switch applications, I have to either:

    1. Move the mouse all the way to the left to access the dock
    2. Press Command-Tab to display the appl switcher, which shows up on my primary monitor

    What would it take to have the application switcher show up in the monitor where the mouse is currently at? :confused:

    You don't have to move your mouse with Command-Tab. Just hold down the command key and hit the tab key until it's on the application you want.

    True, you got me on that one. However, if I am working on monitor B (where the mouse is at) I want the AS to show up in that monitor...else I have to actually turn my head, which kinda sucks.

    #5 close are you to your monitors that you have to turn your head? Or how far away are your monitors that you have to turn your head? I have a multiple monitor set up as well, but i've never had this bother me. Though i primarily work on Monitor (a) and use monitor (b) as a palette holder. But still, i never turn my head to see what palette i'm selecting. Or if i do, it's so little that i don't know why it's a problem. :confused: :confused: :confused:
