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.

 
 

Please Take the TidBITS 2007 Reader Survey!

Send Article to a Friend

It has been many years since we've done a reader survey, but since we're in the middle of some major infrastructure and site redesign work, I'd like to learn more about who you are, what you do, how you acquire technology information, what you think of our content, and most important, what you would like to see more of in TidBITS.

So I would greatly appreciate it if you could spare 5 minutes to fill out our TidBITS 2007 Reader Survey. For those who complete it, we have a small token of our appreciation at the end, but I'm sorry to say that we weren't able to get that shipment of iPhones in time.

I'll share results from the survey in TidBITS as we get a chance to evaluate them. Thanks in advance for your time!
