SuperTab overview

SuperTab allows you to fully customize the Mac's built-in Command-Tab app switcher. Before SuperTab, the app switcher only gave you access to your currently active apps. With SuperTab installed, you now have access to a whole lot more when pressing Command-Tab, such as:

  • Active apps
  • App Windows
  • Recent apps
  • Recent documents
  • Recent folders
  • Dock items
  • Folder contents
  • Any files, folders or applications
  • Calendar Items
  • Dropbox items
  • Clipboard history
  • Multiple clipboards
  • Customizable screen shots
  • Web site shortcuts
  • Tagged items
  • Finder sidebar items
  • Saved spotlight searches
  • Display configurations

SuperTab also gives you powerful control over your applications by allowing you to configure any application to automatically:

  • Open itself to ensure it is running when users need it: during work hours, week days, week day evenings, weekend days or all the time.
  • Hide itself after it has been in the background for a user-selected time period.
  • Quit itself after it has been idle for a user-selected time period.
  • Prevent System Sleep or Screen Saver activation when it is the foreground application.

There's a lot more too!

  • Assign custom hotkeys to any file, folder or app -- as well as to many actions within SuperTab.
  • Preview Text, Image and PDF file contents directly within SuperTab.
  • Drill down into folders to access virtually any file or folder with ease.

DefaultFolder is the only Finder enhancement-type app developed tirelessly, year after year, decade after decade, kudos agai to St.Clair Software.

I'm using SuperTab since v1; it's a real time-saver! I started working on 14” CRTs in the Nineties, and I can’t get rid of my habit to constantly close the Finder windows to get some extra space… on my dual-24" configuration :) Having SuperTab to quickly access all of the latest Finder items is great.

this application in the best on the platform for multi tasking and application switching , it add a lot of features and option to boost the productivity , while many other application switchers apps on Mac are trying just to focus on one thing , supertab add a whole lot of things at your keyboard command tab or command option , once I tried it for the first time I was blown away from how this application can access all current , hidden and other application with clipboard and option to do quick action just from the same window . very powerful and convenient and deserves 7 stars not 5.

I like that this little app will allow you to easily switch open apps, but also provides in the same app, access to items I have copied. I also like that I can program it to open quickly with a double tap of the Command key.

I was looking for a replacement for Dock Thing because they have stopped developing it. This is it! It's great.
