For Google Chrome or Terminal, is there any keyshort to switch different Chrome windows within Chrome? Since cmd+tab can only switch to different programs. Please advise, thanks.

You can configure the key combination in System Preferences » Keyboard » Keyboard Shortcuts (tab) » Keyboard and Text Input (left list) » Move focus to next window in application (right list). This works globally for all applications.


For Terminal the Windows have a CmdNumber combination assigned (e.g. Cmd1 for the first window).


You can display this shortcut in the window title in Terminal » Preferences… » Settings » (select your active settings) » Window (tab). Check Command key.

Additionally, the shareware Witch provides several different Window switchers, like "all windows of all applications" etc.

Perfect answer (thank you!!), but just to add, in "OS X El Capitan", you now need to change the shortcut which is simply called "Move focus to next window". – Mike Gledhill Apr 13 at 19:50
