Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

 
 

Evernote 2.2.1

Send Article to a Friend

Evernote has introduced version 2.2.1 of its eponymous note-taking software. Despite the minor version bump, the update has several major changes, starting with the capability to create links to any note that can be shared with others or embedded in other notes. A new “snippet view,” combined with improved history navigation features, gives users a better at-a-glance overview of their note taking. And finally, the latest release of Evernote comes with better integration with VoiceOver and several bug fixes. (Free from Evernote’s site or the Mac App Store, 19.2 MB)
