    i have a question on how to perform an action quicker

    lets say i have itunes and safari and firefox open (sometimes i use 2 browsers)

    and i also have skype open and i'm chatting w/ a friend (is there a way to separate my messages from the main skype interface?)

    anyway, i want to send my friend a file that is on the desktop

    in windows i can do it quickly by 1) hitting show desktop 2) click and hold the file 3) hit alt tab and bring up skype 4) drag to skype message box

    in ios (i have 10.8.4) i have to minimize itunes/ safari / firefox manually before i drag it to the skype message box

    when i try to show desktop using the trackpad (pointing in 3 diff directions) and then i click -> drag to skype message box, if all the apps are not minimized, i cannot alt + tab (or rather command/squigglybox + tab) to skype because they will also pop up again, and not show the desktop

    does this make any sense? a little inebriated right now, hehe :j

    basically i want to be able to quickly show desktop, and alt + tab and only skype comes up instead of all the other apps. otherwise unelss theyre minimized they block everything
