Hiding Others the quick way

Recommended Posts

Imagine you have a bunch of apps open - usually this means a lot of windows are open and this can make for a very busy screen.

 

So to hide all those windows except one application do the following.

 

So let's first get some apps open. Mail, Safari, Finder (open some finder windows) iTunes, etc.

 

Go to the dock, hover over the icon of which ever app you want to remain on screen, now hold option (alt) and the command key (apple key) and as you old those two keys click the docked safari icon for example and watch as all the other application's window(s) hide.

 

Neat huh?

 

Play around with the dock and alt clicking or just apple clicking and observe the behavior. You can learn some new tricks by playing around like this.

 

Have fun and I hope this helps your productivity.
