When working with a lot of apps that run simultaneously, switching between them becomes a problem, because it is time-consuming.
Command-Tab Plus is designed to let you switch between apps in a faster and more convenient way.
It helps you to get rid of the chaos that happens when there are too many apps running at the same time.
Switching apps on macOS with the Command+Tab shortcut is great as it is, but there aren’t any built-in tools to customize how the app switcher works. Command-Tab Plus is an app switcher that adds just that.
Command-Tab Plus adds a number shortcut, so you can easily switch to an app without tapping a bunch of keys...
Use icon numbers to quickly select and switch between apps. To do that, use a shortcut to open the switch window and simply press the app number on the keyboard.
This will significantly save your time!
By default, Command-tab Plus hides the icons of all inactive (hidden) apps. This function allows you to quickly switch between the apps you are using at the moment, so you will not be distracted by the other apps. The Command-Tab Plus settings let you enable the hidden apps to be shown, thus, the inactive apps icons will be marked (semitransparent) and displayed at the end of the list.
When using Command-Tab Plus, it displays only the icons of the apps running on the current display or space. Thus, it isolates the apps in one space, and the apps in other spaces. Of course, you can disable this function in the app's settings.
The Command-Tab Plus settings allow setting up a keyboard shortcut, press it and you will see a switcher window. Besides, you can configure Command-Tab Plus to be shown up instead of a "regular" window to switch between applications. Or you can setup another shortcut to use simultaneously with the regular app switcher. Command-Tab Plus works similarly to the "regular" switcher. It helps to organize the work with spaces and external displays in a better and more rational way.
The Command-Tab Plus settings allow setting a theme colour, a highlighted element colour, a window frame colour and icon sizes. Basically, you can customize it.
When the Command-Tab Plus window is active, use the following shortcuts:
- Tab - select the next app
- Shift+Tab or '(tilde) - select the previous app
You can also use <--> and your mouse to do that
- Q - quit the app
- H - hide the app
-Esc - hide the switcher window without switching to the selected app
