When you have multiple workbooks open on your DT, is there a keyboard command to 'scroll', bring rear ones forward?

I'm using a Mac and OSX 10.2.8

Kind of a fundamental question but the xl help was no help and other searches produced nothing so ....

TIA

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

I'm not sure about a MAC, but on a PC, you can ALT+TAB to get between open windows.

I think I remember doing something similar on a MAC years ago.

Actually, I just tried ALT+TAB and it didn't work. So I then tried, what else, CONTROL+TAB and that seems to work. :)

Learning something new everyday! :)

Oh well .... doesn't seem to work on a Mac in any combination.

Really trying to get away from that darn mouse ........ AHA!!!!

No it doesn't work in Safari but in Excel Control Tab does rotate through open windows.

Thank you!

Doesn't that answer your original question?

To cycle through open windows on your desktop, you can use COMMAND+TAB.

Hope this helps!
