Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Witch allows you to switch directly between not only applications (as you can do with Command-Tab), but windows as well. Instead of switching applications first, then windows, use Witch to switch directly to your desired window. If you're coming to the Mac from Windows, you'll find Witch a natural-feeling replacement for Windows' ability to switch directly to windows.

• Witch earned a very-rare perfect five-mouse rating from Macworld: "...Witch is easily one of the most useful utilities on my Macs."

Witch optionally works across Spaces, too, allowing you to easily switch to windows in any other Space.

You can even define global hot keys for useful tasks such as releasing or closing all minimized windows, or zooming the frontmost window.

As you can see from the screenshots, Witch has a ton of customization options, none of which are required, but all of which can help make Witch work exactly as you want it to work.

Witch was recently recognized as one of Macworld's Mac Gems of the Year for 2010.

◆◆ NOTE: You do *not* have to leave the Witch application running to use Witch.

The first time you quit Witch, a dialog will appear asking if you'd like Witch to run in the background. Say yes, and you can then switch away without seeing Witch in the Dock. You can access the settings panel at any time by either double-clicking the application, or by pressing comma while the Witch panel is onscreen. ◆◆

Customer Reviews

Still the best, works flawlessly with Yosemite!!

Still the best window switcher out there! No problems with Yosemite! This is how it works: instead of the Application Switcher’s Cmd-Tab move your thumb over one key and use Option-Tab to activate Witch. Works right out of the box, but there are enough tweakable settings to customize it perfectly to your individual needs. Email responsiveness from Many Tricks is fantastic: usually within one day, sometimes within a few hours. Very impressive-- keep up the good work Rob and Peter!

Life Saver

I’ve been a mac guy for years, but I started working on PC at work and I loved the task switching features of a PC over Mac. This is makes my mac so much better with seamless integration. My only wish is that the design was more like the traditional Mac or PC versions, but that’s just me being nit picky ;-)
