Radically simpler & faster window switcher

Switch between application windows effortlessly – with a click, a quick gesture, keyboard shortcuts or search; no matter how many of them you have open; even on multiple spaces & multiple displays.

Version 2.4. Works on macOS Yosemite & El Capitan.

Switch with a click on the sidebar

An auto-hiding sidebar lists your windows organized in groups. To switch just bring the cursor over to the one you want and click. And if you use multiple displays, you get a sidebar on each of them (so no need to hunt around, like with the Dock).

Switch with a top-edge gesture

You do not even need to move the cursor all the way to the sidebar. Put a finger on the top-edge of the trackpad and the panel will appear; slide it down and the selection will move down the list. Lift finger when the window you want is selected.

Switch with a better Cmd+Tab

Mac’s Cmd+Tab switcher fails for applications with multiple windows, right? So Contexts gives you a better one – which lists windows instead. Just press Cmd+Tab and then tab to the window you want.

Switch with Command+<number>

Love keyboard shortcuts? Then you will love this. Every window gets a number based on its position in the list. To switch to one press Command+<number>. This way you can get to your frequently used windows in a single keystroke — without even thinking about it.

Switch with search

Yup, Contexts got this too. Press Control+Space, (or whichever keyboard shortcut you prefer), type a few characters from the application name or window title and then press enter. It is perfect for infrequently used windows.

Other Notable Things

You probably switch windows 100s of times a day. Contexts will let you do it effortlessly, each time; so you can stop hunting around for your windows and stay in flow. Give it a try.

Version 2.4. Works on macOS Yosemite & El Capitan.
