today's TUAW Tip, I thought I'd build on Scott's tip yesterday
(concerning the Application Switcher) with a simple tip about cycling windows, not applications. Many of us know (or
will soon) that using cmd - tab will switch between applications, but plenty of users still haven't discovered the
wonders of cmd - ` (the key right above tab), which allows you to switch between windows within an application. So if
you, for example, have a few documents open in Word, cmd - ` will easily let you switch between just those documents,
without having to bother with any other windows and apps you have open.
One catch: this works in most apps
such as browsers, iChat and even iPhoto, but not in a select few, such as Photoshop. In fact: if anyone knows how to
cycle windows in Photoshop, please sound off in the comments.
Now that you're armed with both cmd - tab and
cmd - `, virtually no window is safe from your view. Combine this trick with a little Exposé
action and you could obtain the ranking of "OS X
window management ninja."
