    Hi. New OS X user coming from windows. This question might sound silly, but how do i access windows overlapped by other windows of the same application type? In windows 7/8, clicking on an already active application will reveal all windows of that application, so you can click on which ever window.

    I usually have my windows taking up most if not the entire screen, and i ended up having this problem when i have multiple windows of them open at the same time. Right now i either resize the top focused window until it's small enough that i can see the one behind, or i need to keep minimizing the top windows until i see the one I'm looking for, or by pressing F3 to show all windows of all applications, and then finding the window I'm looking for. If i have many windows of the same application open, neither of these current methods will be efficient enough.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Sounds like your looking for Ctrl-F3
