    Windows alt-tab on macOS

    Yeah that's so annoying to me too and I didn't find a way, so recently I just downloaded alt-tab which mimics windows alt-tab function and I found it to be much more useful than Exposé

  • Rectangle

    Move and resize windows on macOS with keyboard shortcuts and snap areas

    I am not by any means associated with the makers of this app, but I am very glad I found it. Anyone who often switched from Windows to Mac would notice the significant downgrade in terms of window management for the latter. And, honestly, you shouldn't have to pay 50 bucks just to manage your windows like a normal person without getting repetitive strain injury from mouse overuse. So, rectangle is the perfect solution.

  • Amethyst

    Automatic tiling window manager for macOS à la xmonad.

  • UnnaturalScrollWheels

    Invert scroll direction for physical scroll wheels while maintaining "Natural" scrolling for trackpads on MacOS

    I can't believe I haven't heard of this until today. Thank you so much. I was using Unnatural scroll wheel or something but this is clearly better. It does introduce some lag for single clicks because it waits for an accompanying action but I hope I can learn to get over that.
