Cycle through all open windows via the keyboard
Authored by: kray on Jun 10, '05 08:01:44PM

MY SOLUTION:
1) activate expose's application window viewing (F10)
2) instead of using COMMAND-TAB ... use OPTION-TAB
(better affects too :)

Enjoy!

You can just hit tab, no need for option. At least there is no difference that I can see here.

Cycle through all open windows via the keyboard

Yes, just hitting tab works. Also note tab will take you to the application mode if you are already in all window mode (F9, by default). Furthermore, hitting the accent (grave) key (the key above the tab key on U.S. layouts) will take you backwards through applications, just like the application switcher (command+tab, keep holding command, then hit the accent key). And in keeping with the using-the-keyboard-only theme, while you are in the application window mode you can cycle through *those* windows with the arrow keys. This is all quite handy if you have a large number of applications and windows open...

you can print these keyboard shortcuts (and more) from Help. You can also copy and paste into another text app and create your own "cheat sheets".
