Among others, there’s Command-C to Copy, Command-V to Insert, Command-X to Cut, Command-Q to Quit, even Command-P to Print. And, there’s Command-Tab to switch between open applications. Here’s how to supercharge Command-Tab on your Mac.
Active, Dock, Recent, Documents, Custom
In an obvious nutshell, my sub-title above describes what you get with the SuperTab app on your Mac. Instead of just switching between open apps, SuperTab supercharges switching.
Command-Tab can do so much more than switch to an app you already know is open somewhere on your Mac’s screen.
Install SuperTab and you get immediate Command-Tab access to Active Apps, Dock Items, Recent Apps, Recent Documents, Custom Items, and even Desktop contents.
SuperTab is configurable but makes it easy to cycle through a variety of tab rows, each with icons for apps and documents.
Plus, you can customize a tab row to gain quick access to files, folders, other apps, even websites.
Wait. There’s more!
Don’t like the standard app rows in SuperTab? Change them, or create different rows with apps you choose.
Right-click or Control-click any item in the pop up SuperTab switcher, and you get access to a configuration menu with more controls.
SuperTab isn’t free, but if you already use Command-Tab to navigate between Mac apps, you’ll appreciate immediately the extra productivity with SuperTab’s switching options. Nicely done and worth a look.
