rcmd overview

rcmd - instant app switching with a rarely used key.

Switch apps instantly just by their first letter!
  • Hold down the right side |⌘ command| and press the first letter of the app name to focus apps instantly
  • The Dynamic algorithm will choose the most useful app for each letter
    • The algorithm will adapt in real time to your workflow
  • If apps live on separate spaces, rcmd will switch to the relevant space
    • Switching spaces needs the following setting enabled: - System Preferences --> Mission Control --> "When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application"
  • When pressing the key while the app is already focused, you can use one of 2 useful functions
    • HIDE: Show/Hide the app instantly
    • CYCLE: Focus other apps with the same first letter
Assign custom keys for your favorite apps
  • Hold down |⌘ command| + |⌥ option| and press any letter to assign that letter permanently to the currently focused app
  • When an app is in the STATIC list:
    • The assigned key can launch the app when it isn't running
    • The HIDE/CYCLE setting can be adjusted on a per-app basis
Customize the app to your liking
  • The Trigger setting allows you to change the Right Command trigger to any combination of modifiers
    • This will come in handy if you have a keyboard without a Right Command key
  • Disable specific letters from being registered by rcmd
    • Click on the Settings button to find the Enabled Keys setting
  • App Switcher UI
    • You can optionally see running apps with their assigned keys while holding Right Command (or your custom trigger key)
