  1. I’m using Tiger…are you? I dont’ know if this is a Tiger specific trick, but all you have to do is hit F9…then press tab and it should bring up one window to the front. Hit tab again and it will cycle to the next window you have open and so on….

  2. so weird… it wasn’t working before. Maybe cause I was using parallels at the moment with OSX. Thanks for the tip!
