Version 2.3. Works with OS X Yosemite & El Capitan.

Switch with one click

An auto-hiding sidebar shows your windows organized in groups. It's basically a Dock — for your windows.

  • Expands when you hover your cursor over it.
  • To switch to a window click its title.
  • Reorder groups or windows by dragging them up or down.
  • Swipe towards the edge of the screen to hide it.

Switch with a gesture

You do not even need to move the cursor all the way to the sidebar!

  • Move your finger across the edge of the trackpad and the selection on the sidebar will change.
  • Lift your finger to bring the selected window forward.

Switch with a better Cmd+Tab

Cmd+Tab switcher fails for applications with multiple windows, right? — so we built a better one that lets you switch to individual windows directly.

  • Press Command+Tab to show panel with windows listed in order they were used.
  • Tab selects next window and Shift+Tab selects previous window in the list.
  • Release Command to bring selected window to front.

Switch with a keystroke

Love keyboard shortcuts? Then you will love this. Switch to your frequently used windows like you type — without even thinking about it.

  • Press Command+<window number>.
  • Release Command.
  • No step 3.

Switch with search

Yup, we got this too. Perfect for infrequently used windows.

  • Press Control+Space to show panel in search mode.
  • Type a few characters from application name or window title.
  • Move selection up or down with arrow keys.
  • Press Enter to bring selected window to front.

What else does Contexts do?

  • Works with multiple displays.
  • Tracks applications which do not have open windows.
  • Shows Dock icon counts.
  • Has shortcuts to re-order groups and windows
  • Has shortcuts to quit & hide applications and close & minimize windows.
