My favorite short cut

Switching quickly between open applications.
Without a doubt my favorite Mac tip is a global
keyboard shortcut. I tend to work with 3 to 4
applications open. You can go to the dock and click on
them but that's not real fast. If you hold down the
Command key while you press Tab you get a little window
in the middle of your screen showing all open
applications. Continue to hold down the Command key.
Now you can either move the mouse over the one you want
or keep pressing the Tab key till the one you want is
highlighted then release the Command key and that
application will become the active app. Here's the
really cool part. The window arranges the applications
with the latest on the left to the oldest on the right.
This makes it real easy if you are pasting things
between 2 applications. The last app you used is always
one tab away.
