  • Linux is Making Apple Great Again
    I've been issued a Mac Laptop for work, and for the first 2 months by far the #1 issue for me was the alt-tabbing. I've been successfully using Witch to restore normal window-tabbing (in place of application-tabbing): Unfortunately after MacOS ~Vista~ Catalina you still need to grant Witch permissions for each application you're alt-tabbing to that Witch hasn't seen yet, but... - Source: Hacker News / 6 days ago

    Witch is another option with extensive options. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Looking for an alternative to alt-esc on mac
    Another option is Witch, switch between apps, tabs, windows, or all three. I've used it a couple times. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • AltTab, a macOS app which "brings the power of Windows’s “alt-tab” window switcher to macOS", is in need of someone to take over the project
    You might be interested in Witch instead. Or, honestly, if you haven’t checked out all the various things Exposé can do these days, you might want to do a quick tour. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • Must Have Apps, Free or Paid -
    If you find yourself missing alt tab to switch by windows, check out Contexts, Witch, or the aptly named AltTab as an alternative window switcher. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • I'm having a tough time with Cmd+Tab
    Have a look at an app called Witch. I've been using it forever and highly recommend it. You can configure it to cycle through all windows without having to specifically select an app first, which I guess is what you're after. You can also choose if you want to bring to front the entire app or just the individual window you're switching to. There are plenty of other options to customize its behavior. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Apps 👩🏻‍💻
    – Contexts/Witch/AltTab as an alternative window switcher. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • AltTab – Windows alt-tab on macOS
    Given this isn't free anyway, you could have both behaviors with a single app Witch ( - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • AltTab – Windows alt-tab on macOS
    I paid for Witch and have been pretty happy with it [1]. Only issue is very occasionally the MacOS switcher and the Witch switcher both appear and fight for control. [1] - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • A modern alternative for HyperDock?
    There is a way to get little previews in the Command+Tab feature if you use Witch from - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • I want to switch over to Mac OS from Windows. Anybody here have experience/advice?
    Yeah, one or more of these will do the trick! These apps enhance the app/window/tab switching experience. Witch Alt-Tab Contexts. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • Favorite Command + Tab alternative?
    Witch – Multiple flexible switchers with search. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Looking for the best Command-Tab switcher (Contexts VS Witch)
    I've recently been testing out some command-tab app switchers to see which works best, and have really enjoyed Contexts and Witch. I like the feel of Contexts more (it feels native), but Witch has the ability to view, search, and switch directly to any tab in any window. For instance, I can open a specific tab of Safari using Witch whereas with Contexts I need to first open the Safari window that holds the tab,... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • A tip to switch workspaces and move windows between them easily
    I use witch instead: it’s really nice to be able to define the behavior of the window. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • The new Cmd + Tab switcher with bookmarks on board
    To compare, Bartender charges $15 USD while you charge $3 USD/year. Bartender however only charges these for individual versions (though it does give discounts on new versions if you have an old one), so you would need a subscriber for 5 years to get similar procing. A similar app: witch ( also charges I think around 15 USD. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • How to have quick shortcuts to toggle between apps?
    I just switched to Mac from Windows. I've been able to regain some window management functions of window snapping via Rectangle and window switching via Witch (perfect except for a small delay). In Windows, I had a set of apps pinned to the taskbar, so that WIN+1, 2, 3, 4, 5 were bound to my most often used apps. I work with text across multiple programs, so I like to be able to switch faster than CMD+TAB and... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • AltTab: Windows Alt-Tab on macOS
    Witch ( has an option that allows you to treat tabs as if they’re windows, but over time I’ve found Witch more and more buggy and gave up on using it, which is such a shame. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Command + tab, migrating from windows to mac
    This used to work. Haven't used it in a while tho. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • LinearMouse – A minimal app to get rid of scrolling acceleration on macOS
    Https:// may be exactly what you're looking for. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Fed up with the Mac, I spent six months with a Linux laptop
    Not built in, but: Gives you the best of both worlds. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Hotkey to switch between different windows from the different app?
    What you want is called a “macos application switcher” or “macos window switcher”. The most recent app I’ve used is Contexts and another app is command-tab plus . Back in the day I used to use Witch so there’s three options. - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
