    I am referring to Show All Windows (by applications) as oppose to Mission Control.

    I am aware you can right click an icon on dock and click "show all windows" or press control + (down arrow),
    and then "Tab" to cycle through show all windows for each open application. However is there any way to change the keyboard shortcut for cycling through application windows - instead of 'tab'.

    I remember in Snow Leopard you could also click and hold mouse on dock icon to show all application windows.

    The answer is no, but you can also try this obscure shortcut:

    Cmd+Tab to bring up the Application Switcher and keep holding Cmd. Now you can use Tab and Tilde to navigate the Application Switcher, which you probably know. However you can also press the 1 key to do an Expose of the currently selected Application.

    Alternatively you can try HyperSwitch which streamlines the above operation.
