Use a Keyboard shortcut

I use the keyboard-shortcut CMD <
to flip between open windows of the currently open Application.
In combination of CMD TAB there's no need anymore to use Exposť or minimize a window. I'm extremely fast with this.

For me, switching among an app's windows requires CMD ` (the character under the tilde, above the TAB key). Is this what you meant to post?

That shortcut varies by OS locale or keyboard; I forget which. For US English types, it is indeed command-backtick (Cmd-`)

As an aside (to the grandparent post), this won't solve the original hint submitter's problem, because in his case the obscuring window and the obscured window belong to two different apps, and the Cmd-` (and non-US equivalents) only switch among windows belonging to the current app.

Unfortunately this doesn't work when a Finder window covers another application's window.
