By default, macOS comes with an applications switcher that can be easily activated by using the Command + Tab hotkey. However, the switcher does not prove to be efficient if you have multiple windows open for the same application.
HotSwitch is a minimalist and unobtrusive Mac app that provides windows switching capabilities, enables you to preview the window labels before activating them, and offers you the possibility to navigate using only keyboard commands.
Effortless to install windows switching utility that resides in your status bar
The HotSwitch software archive contains an installer package that makes sure the application is deployed correctly. Once launched, the HotSwitch app will add a small icon to your status bar, and the associated menu enables you to access the app’s Preferences.
For your convenience, HotSwitch comes with a predefined global key that you can easily change as you see fit. In addition, the app offers you the possibility to supersede the default effect of the Command + Tab hotkey.
Straightforward windows navigation tool that relies only on keyboard commands
The HotSwitch global keyboard combination opens a panel that lists all the windows that are currently open on your desktop. Note that HotSwitch will not include the windows that are hidden.
This panel will remain active until you press the hotkey again, or select an activate one of the available windows. You can navigate the list using the arrow keys, and the selection is confirmed by pressing Return.
Simple but powerful solution for switching between various windows
If you do not enjoy using the default macOS Expose function, and you find yourself limited by the lack of information and options sported by the built-in applications switcher, HotSwitch might be a solution to your problems.
HotSwitch provides a list with all the active windows, regardless if they belong to the same app, together with their label, and enables you to activate any of them in no time, via keyboard commands.
