Keyboard Maestro’s Application Switcher is a very powerful way to navigate between active applications. You can quickly go from one application to the next.
What’s separates Keyboard Maestro’s Switcher than Apple:
Using the Application Switcher, you can simply enable the command and then select the application. But there are a few additional commands available.
When the Application Switcher is in focus, keep the Command key and use the mouse and these keys to perform actions:
|k||(twice) to mark an application to Force Quit|
|s||Make application hidden|
|l||Mark application to launch (You can select more than one!)|
|a||Hide “Always Show” applications|
|j||Show applications that were recently quit|
|i||Get Information on the selected application|
If you accidentally hit the Application Switcher, simply hit the escape key to close it.
I personally like the ‘Force Quit’ feature. It makes it so easy to quit out of an application that is stalled. (Much better than having to remember the keyboard shortcut.
When you see the “beach ball” and it appears the application is stuck, simply activate the application switcher and then kk the application to force quit.
