Illuminate lets you cycle through your windows like Command-Tab lets you cycle through your applications. It gives you large, easy to identify window screenshots so you can quickly switch to your desired window without squinting. Or you can use Quick Switch and just type in all or part of the window's title to jump directly there from anywhere.


  • Cycle through your windows with big, beautiful thumbnails at the touch of a key
  • Cycle through all the windows on your Mac, grouped by application
  • Jump directly to a window from anywhere by typing in all or part of the title more...

What's New

Version 1.2.3:
  • Fixed bug where windows on separate spaces failed to show up in the app menu, Cycle Windows, and Quick Switch


Mac OS X 10.6 or later

Nice little app, i downloaded trial version.
Overpriced, even at MACzot 9,95 $ 29-30 october. Will not buy.
May be usefull for people who never close windows.
Have a look at aLaunch, great utility app, offers much more options, works very fine and is FREE !

How, exactly, does aLaunch do what Illuminate does, and more? I see nothing with aLaunch that has anything to do with locating open windows. Yet you give Illuminate a 1-star rating on the basis of a false comparison? Excuse me while I jump over to the aLaunch page and return the favor!


Completely different apps. One if for launching apps, and one is for navigating between open windows. But I guess that is how you have a rating of -8 (as of this post) - you know not what you say. Cheers.

real review, decent app. Not too much memory. I like hyperswitch more but it doesn’t look like hyperswitch will ever get out of alpha development...
