10.7: Some Mission Control tips
Authored by: vczilla on Jul 30, '11 12:54:45PM
Yep, I didn't do my home work (I'm the original poster of the tip).

To recapitulate: When you're in Mission Control if you press ` ( not cmd+` as I originally wrote) you enter the 'Application Windows' mode.

Once there you can navigate from one application to another by pressing ` to go forward or tab to go backward.

In the 'Application Windows' mode you can also use opt+tab to initiate the application picker.

You can then use opt+tab and opt+` to navigate the application strip back and forth.

Note that you can't use opt+q to directly quit an application from the app picker contrary to its regular desktop counterpart.

Thanks you guys for having corrected my mistakes.

10.7: Some Mission Control tips
Authored by: Michelasso on Aug 26, '11 05:06:51AM

I've eventually changed my keyboard to the US setting so I could finally figure out this tip. I am afraid you should correct "opt-tab" with "cmd-tab" to get the active application strip.

Once in Application Windows "`" is equivalent to "shift-tab".

To add the "option" key doesn't change anything.

I am still not able to select a window typing the first letter of the application name, tho. Any idea?
