    OK, two part post here on keyboard shortcuts:

    1) if :apple:-M minimizes a window to the dock, Does anyone know what command will "un-minimize" a window, or allow you to scroll through dock icons? (besides :apple:-TAB for open apps)

    2) any other pet-peeve or missing shortcuts you want to talk about?

    What if you have multiple windows for the same app how will it know which one to resume but it would still be good to have

    I suppose it will come up soon enough so cmd+x for cut.

    I think the reason the shortcut isn't there(or isn't popularly used) is because once you minimized that window, you're no longer focused on it. I'm sure some people would use it, but the shortcut ":apple:+M" is used to get a window out of you're way, quickly, bringing it back up, can take longer


    I'm not saying a shortcut would be worthless, I'm sure some would love it, but thats Apple's "logic"(or lack of it)

    To get to your dock using a keyboard shortcut, it's Control+F3. You can find that under the keyboard shortcuts tab in system preferences under Keyboard Navigation. I use Quicksilver to un-minimize a window. There's also witch, but I didn't like it that much.

    NICE! that's pretty much exactly the one I was looking for. of course on the laptop keyboards, that's fn+ctrl+f3

    I haven't tried quicksilver. will investigate.
