Author Biography

Agen Schmitz is a freelance writer and editor with a lot of Amazon time under his belt. After leaving Amazon in 2003 (as senior editor for the Camera & Photo store), Agen has written for the Amazon Electronics Store blog (mainly covering Apple news) and created product content for a variety of Amazon categories — from PCs to comforter sets to luxury watches. He lives in Seattle with his wife and son (who likes to think his father’s iPad is his own). (January 2012)

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.
