Switching between apps shortcut on second monitor (Mac)

Post by Leskiclub » Fri Oct 19, 2018 3:39 pm

Hey everybody!

So let me explain my problem:

When I'm on my second monitor, using a MacBook pro, I mostly use a keyboard as I'm too far from the trackpad to use it everytime.
I'm on fullscreen mode on both windows, and I've selected the main one to be on my monitor. BUT!!! If I use the shortcut(CMD+tab) to switch between apps on fullscreen, it always switches the one that's on my MacBook screen. I've tried to find a solution on Google but haven't yet and I'm getting really tired of it as it messes with my workflow. Any idea how?

i have two suggestions to try:

1. if you have it selected, try disabling "Displays have separate Spaces" in the Mission Control preferences.

2. don't use fullscreen mode. for various reasons i dislike fullscreen mode and rarely use it. to help avoid it, I use BetterTouchTool to reprogram the green window button so that it does the old "maximum zoom" function, instead of going into fullscreen mode.
