If you use or have been using the APPLE TAB keyboard combination to switch between open applications, then try APPLE TILDE (that's tilde… ~) rather than the APPLE SHIFT TAB everyone has been told to use, to go backwards in your application switching.

 

So that's APPLE TAB, keep holding the APPLE key and while holding it press the tilde key, you will notice that by holding the Apple key you can use TAB and TILDE to navigate back and forth. Ahh that's much better…

 

Please note:

You have to invoke application switching by first doing an Apple TAB keyboard combination first, from there you can use the Apple Tilde to navigate backwards.

 

That's it folks!

It's holding down shift which reverses the TAB switching direction, not ~

Clarification of switching:

 

Command (Apple) + Tab = Switch applications

Having invoked the application switcher as above, you can reverse search through the apps instead of going all the way round in a circle by continuing to hold Command and using shift and tab, or by using tilde (insead of shift and tab).

 

Command+Tilde (right off the bat, without invoking application switching) is a window switcher, switching though windows within the frontmost application.

 

Try it, it makes sense.
