    Hey guys,

    Ever since I installed ML, I see that when I'm on a Desktop, I'm having to click twice on a dock icon to switch to an (open) application. Clicking once just changes the menu bar name to that application.

    Anyone else see this behavior?

    I'm guessing it only happens with applications that are in full screen mode, or on a different desktop than the active one?

    System Preferences > Mission Control > tick the box "When switching to an application..."

    Lovely, thank you very much. I remember having changed that some hours ago. That solved it. :)

    Haha, I was wondering about it for several months (I must have changed it indadvertedly after an update), thinking it was an update that changed the way it worked. Just found the option today when going through Mountain Lion :D
