For some reason I can't use (Apple Meta Key / Apple Key) and Backtick aka ` to cycle through Windows anymore...

Trouble is I'm not sure when it quit working so I'm not sure if I created a conflict, but I've tried deleting prefs and searched around and can't seem to find anything on how to fix it.

It still works in Finder, and probably other apps, but not Safari and a few other apps (like my PDF reader...)

Any suggestions?

This has bugged me since i got my MacBook but have just managed to fix it by doing this:

"going to System Prefs, Keyboard & Mouse, Keyboard Shortcuts, Keyboard Navigation, and click on Move focus to next wondow in active application. There may be other shortcuts that you can restore there, too." taken from From

Then change the shortcut to apple key + `

Hope this helps as I know it's such a pain not being able to quickly switch between windows, particularly in Safari.

You rock!! Thanks much - I don't know how I overlooked that as I was digging around in that window but entirely missed it. You saved me though - thank you! – Ejoso Sep 11 '10 at 20:28
