is there a way to do this?

also, can anyone advise as to whether Witch is a good app to increase functionality on the mac? i have a 13 inch mbp and would like some additional functionality when I have a ton of windows open and want to do something like get to the desktop space or find a particular window.

thanks.

    HI,

    Use Tabs instead of separate windows. Command + T

    That way you can switch between tabs with only one window open.

    You may like Glims. Great features, free, and you can access it from Safari / Preferences.

    minimize all - Option click the yellow button, or use Command-Option-M keyboard shortcut. Command H (Hide) might also be what you're looking for.

    Check System Preferences / Keyboard - Keyboard Shortcuts.

    Click: Restore Defaults.

    Hey Jonathan

    I did think you meant just safari windows... maybe Exposé's 'desktop' shortcut is more what you want (default is F11 - change it/assign active screen corners in System Preferences-Exposé & Spaces)
