    With the move to full screen apps, there is one feature that OS X still lacks. Maybe it'll be fixed in 10.11

    Command + Tab does not switch between full screen apps. They don't even appear in the app switcher.

    Also cannot toggle between full screen windows in a given app using Command + ~

    Why is it like this? Is there a way of doing this that I am missing?

    I've posted a screen capture of the problem here:

    The problem is Word being in the same space as Safari, which makes CMD+TAB go the nearest space with Safari in it, and that is the space where Word is in.

    Check the behavior when Word is in another space, that is at least how it works on my "Mac".

    Amazing. That sorts the problem. Thanks! Pretty clumsy that you need to be aware of that. Does that mean I will not have the problem as long as Safari has its own Desktop?

    It may be. I am not a fullscreen user or even CMD+TAB user, as I mostly use Total Spaces to navigate.
