Minimize/unminize all windows in the active application
Authored by: avramd on Jan 11, '10 03:29:13PM


So I hope I don't sound like I'm being contrary again since you've had to defend yourself so much already here. But in terms of excessive mouse movements to unminimize all windows, I'm not seeing it.

Just do F10, any arrow key, then opt-return. Three keystrokes, no mouse movements.

Since all the windows are minimized, it doesn't matter which arrow key you hit b/c any window you highlight will be a minimized one, and thus opt-return on it will restore them all.

Is there a scenario this doesn't cover that still requires excessive mouse movements?

two hands and both on keyboard, or one hand in uncomfortable, contorted positions, with a several-step sequence. nice alternate if both hands already on keyboard, but i prefer attaching this script to a trackball chord -- one hand, no keyboard, two clicks.

as mentioned i may do this several times a minute depending, so it makes a big difference. but whatever works for you.
