It has always annoyed me that when I minimise a window (using command m) I couldn’t un-minimise it using my keyboard. I’d either have to click on the dock or open the app then go to the window menu).
Well … it turns out there is a way, and I found it here.
Restore a minimized window from Dock
One thing that always bothered me about MacOS was that I had to click the dock icon to restore a minimized window. It wasn’t until today that I learned the keyboard shortcut. Apologies for those that already knew but maybe this helps someone from this minor annoying inconvenience.
To re-open the minimized window, go to the window that you want to “maximize” by windows navigation keyboard shortcut command + tab. Release only tab button.
Keep pressing command button and press option button. Now pressing option button release command button, the window will be maximized*.
*Maximize in the Windows-sense…not the “fill your screen” sense
I hope I’m not the only person to have not known this.
