Group your apps into workspaces. US$10.99 | SWITCHEM.CO
Window management is something of a holy grail on the Mac. The operating system includes Spaces for organising windows across multiple desktops, but the feature lacks granular control. Switchem takes a different tack: it lets you set up multiple grouped app workspaces for different tasks and flip between them using a mechanism similar to macOS’s built-in app switcher. Once you’ve organised all your task-related app windows, simply create a new group, give it a name and Switchem assigns a number to the workspace. You can then switch to it at any time using a ‘Command-Tab-[number]’ shortcut, which brings all apps to the front in their original positions.
The solution works well on single desktops, while additional handy shortcuts make opening and closing all apps within a group a cinch. It’s just a shame Switchem doesn’t support full-screen apps — also designated Spaces by macOS — across multiple displays, although the developer has promised compatibility in a future update.
It’s good for defining multiple workspaces on a single desktop.
