Use Witch’s search function to type and rapidly filter openw indows
How to Make the most of Witch
In the Actions tab, click the cog in the control under Keyboard, and set the shortcut to ç+†. Set the Backward option below to ß+ç+†. When it’s active, Witch will replace macOS’s built-in app switcher.
Use the switcher
Open some Safari windows and then hide the app ( ç+h). Bring up Witch ( ç+†), navigate to Safari and, with your thumb still holding ç, press the æ key. Your open Safari windows will be displayed in a list.
Preview and select
To bring a window to the front, select it and release ç or press ® . For non-hidden windows, selected items can be previewed by pressing the space bar. Alternatively, return to the app switcher by pressing “.
Use the menu bar
Back in System Preferences, you’ll see a second switcher is set to show in the menu bar. Change its sort order to App Name > Window Title. Now click the menu bar icon to see an alphabetized list of apps and windows.
Define some shortcuts
We already use ç- tabbing for Witch‘s main switcher, so set the new switcher’s two shortcuts to å+† and ß+å+† for, respectively, forward and backward. Use the shortcut to bring up your new switcher.
Filter your windows
If you’ve scads of windows open and don’t feel like going through them all, open Witch and with ç held, press s to search. Start typing to see only item names containing your search terms. Again, ® selects one.
Create a new switcher
Click + to create a new switcher. This one will be specifically for listing open windows. Set the top-left menu to Cycle Windows, “Sort by” to App Name > Window Title, and the orientation direction to down.
Adjust how tabs display
In Safari, add tabs to a window. In Witch, a window with tabs has > next to its title. Use the ‘ key to drill down. Or adjust the Mode menu’s setting to treat tabs as windows, and they’ll then be listed together.
