SuperTab began with a simple premise: Make your Mac's "Command-Tab" Application Switcher more than just a switcher.   And that's just what we did.   We made it much more.   In fact, we Supercharged the Tab Key!

Before SuperTab, pressing Command-Tab gave you this:
Now, with SuperTab, pressing Command-Tab gives you a whole lot more:
Out of the Box
Out of the box, SuperTab gives you Command-Tab access to:
  • Active Applications - your active applications, just as with the original Application Switcher
  • Dock Items - all the applications, files & folders that you have in your Dock
  • Recent Applications - the applications you've recently opened
  • Recent Documents - the documents you've recently opened
  • Dropbox or Desktop Contents - your Dropbox and its contents (if you use Dropbox). Otherwiwse, your Desktop contents
  • Custom Items - an example configuration with Web Sites, common folders, MetaFolders, Screen Shots, Cubbyholes and more

  • Customize SuperTab
    But that's not all. SuperTab is fully configurable to adjust to your working style. You can remove any of the "out of the box" Tab Rows plus create additional ones. You can choose from:
  • Active Applications - your active applications
  • Dropbox Contents - access to your Dropbox and all its contents
  • Dock Items - all the items your Dock
  • Dock Files - just the files & folders in your Dock
  • Dock Applications - just the applications in your Dock
  • Recent Applications - the applications you've recently opened
  • Recent Documents - the documents you've recently opened
  • Folder Contents - the contents of any folder you choose
  • Tagged Items - the files, folders & applications tagged with the Tag(s) you specify*
  • Sidebar Items - items that appear in the "Sidebar" of Finder Windows
  • Front Application Windows - the open windows of the active application
  • All Application Windows - the open windows of all running applications
  • Custom Items - Custom Items Tab Rows let you choose their contents. Add any:
  • Files
  • Folders
  • Applications
  • Individual System Preferences
  • Websites (and specify the browser to open them in)
  • Screenshots and invoke them with a single click of the mouse
  • Meta-Folders to quickly access any group of files, folders or apps that you choose
  • Auto-Types and have SuperTab automatically type commonly used phrases for you
  • Cubbyholes and use them as Scrapbooks, multiple clipboards & as clipboard history

  • Do More with More
    Not only do you suddenly have access to much more than just your Active Applications, but you can now do more with the items in your new Tab Rows as well. You can right-click (or control-click) on any item in any Tab Row to access its configuration menu where you can:


  • Configure any application to ensure it is always running exactly when you need it and guarantee you'll never miss an important message, email or Skype call again.

  • Configure any application to hide itself when it has been in the background for the time you specify and minimize window clutter.

  • Configure any application to auto-quit when it has been idle for a time period you select.   Free up memory and reduce unnecessary CPU usage.
  • Instruct any application to bring all of its windows to the foreground when it becomes the frontmost application. Less rooting around for windows, more doing in them.

    Prevent your Mac from showing the screen saver or from going to sleep in the applications you want. Don't get embarrassed during an important presentation -- or worse -- disconnected during an important Goto Meeting!

    Power Perks:

  • With SuperTab you can assign custom hot keys to any files, folders or applications. Imagine all your important documents and apps literally at your finger tips.

  • You can now also share files via Email. Instantly
    create a new email and attach any file from any Tab Row.

  • You can also add or remove Finder Tags and Labels from any file, folder or application.

  • You can even manage your Browser Downloads:
    Monitor active downloads, save off important downloads, move downloaded Apps directly to your Applications folder, discard downloads based on age and more.
  • As well, you can drill down into the contents of any Folder to find any file, no matter how deep. And best yet, when you do so, the folder will remember the last 8 items accessed. So next time, those files will be ready and waiting for you right away.

  • Keyboard & Mouse Access
    It's not just the Tab key that SuperTab supercharges, for you can activate SuperTab in any or all of the following ways:

  • Press Command-Tab
  • Press Option-Tab
  • Double-Press Command
  • Move your mouse to any corner of the main screen that you designate:
  • This flexibility allows SuperTab to cater to your style, whether you prefer keyboard access, mouse access or both.

    You can even keep the System's Command-Tab App Switcher untouched and fully use SuperTab along side it.
