Command-Tab Plus - hidden appscmd-tab alternative

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.


Command-Tab Plus - can also isolate workspaces so apps in one space don’t appear on another, and it can hide inactive apps entirely, which is handy if you have a lot of app in the background that you don’t need showing up in the switcher.

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.
