    Fullscreen on ML is actually command+ctrl+f

      Yup, that one works for me too but Command+Power doesn’t

      My guess is the author customized his and forgot to double-check others, heh

    You can use command+tab to toggle between applications.

    as a windows refugee, I think Apple has overcomplicated this. One thing that gives me fits is if I minimize a window, and send it to the dock, how do I get that window back to active?

    Or if I have multiple Safari, Preview or other windows open, there’s no simple way to ‘browse’ through them via the keyboard. Command / Tab cycles you through the application windows, not all instances of an application like an email you’re reading, another you’re composing, etc.

      I can recommend Witch (http://manytricks.com/witch/), it ‘fixes’ all your problems.

      I thin you are looking for Command + ~

    Dave, per Tip 1 above, one can easily cycle through multiple open windows of any application via Command – tilde.

    No, that doesn’t work (like windoze) for any window that you have minimized to the dock, only for windows open and active on the desktop.

    As an example, let’s say I am reviewing several pdfs, and browsing the ‘net. I reach my objective on 2 of the pdfs & minimize them. They are stuck on the dock until clicked on. In windoze you can simply alt-tab through the list of all apps, open or minimized.

    What’s the wallpaper used in the first screenshot? It’s not the default Galaxy (OS X Lion), is it?

    “To be clear, we’re talking about the `/~ key, which is alongside the 1 key on a standard US qwerty keyboard.”

    And for azerty ? :(

    Thank you for tip #3. I really don’t like Fullscreen except for writing or movies, but really missed the old Minimize/Maximize of the green dot. Now it’s back. Woohoo!

    Neither ‘Zoom’ nor ‘Maximize’ worked for me after the update ( to macOS Sierra v. 10.12.5 ). What worked for me was to install ‘Spectatle’ ( https://www.spectacleapp.com/ ). And set that up. Another way to permanently fix it, is to use Witch ( https://manytricks.com/witch/ ). I’m not an employee or owner or anything – just a user. I may I say, that it works wonderfully for my needs.
