Contexts 3.5.1

Contexts is a radically faster and simpler window switcher. It gives you 4 ways to switch windows:

  1. Switch with one click to any window: An auto-hiding sidebar shows your windows organized in groups. To switch to a window just click its title in the list. It is as simple as that.
  2. Switch with one keystroke to 9 windows and with two keystrokes to any window: This is super fast. Each window gets a window number based on its position in the list. To switch to a window just press Option+window-number. It you are a keyboard person you will love it.
  3. Cycle through recently used windows: Command+Tab switcher fails if your applications have multiple windows. With Option+Tab Contexts lets you cycle through individual windows and switch to any of them directly.
  4. Switch with search to any window: Invoke panel with keyboard shortcut and type a few characters from the application name or window title to filter the list using fuzzy matching. Press enter to bring selected window forward.


WHAT’S NEW

Version 3.5.1:

  • For apps which use the macOS window tabbing feature, up till now, Contexts has shown a separate window item for each tab. This is because for such apps macOS accessibility service (which is used for retrieving information about apps and windows) lists a separate window for each tab. With this update, these will be grouped together so that only one item is shown for each window.


REQUIREMENTS

OS X 10.11 or later, 64-bit processor
