How to replace and go beyond macOS’s app switcher with Witch
IT WILL TAKE
Witch’s slogan is “ç- Tab Everything”. Initially, the app resembles the standard macOS app switcher, but dig deeper and you rapidly realise Witch is akin to a “pro” take on Apple’s implementation.
With Witch’s switcher active, you can drill down into apps to access their windows by name – more efficient than Exposé – or even by tab. Not sure what you’ve got open, but recall a window’s title? Just use Witch’s search function to type and rapidly filter open windows in real time, much like triggering a Spotlight search.
There’s a ton more more to discover: visual customization, menu bar access, multiple switchers, and more. The bulk of it is covered in some form in our walkthrough. Before the first step, we assume you’ve installed Witch, opened it in System Preferences, and clicked Enable Witch.
You can download a free trial of Witch from manytricks.com/witch. After 50 uses, Witch will occasionally suggest you buy it, which will cost you $14.
