I need a short cut tip in Photoshop. Say I have 3 PS file open. I want to jump to each of the open file without using Mac's Expose. I know in any other app this can can be done by using CMD+` key to toggle through the opened windows. Anyone know how can this be achieved in PS? Thanks in advance!!

Cmd + Tab will toggle you between open Photoshop documents.

Here's a handy PDF of all of the PS CS3 shortcuts http://www.creativetechs.com/tips/tip_resources/PSCS3_Keyboard_Shortcuts_Mac.pdf

D_Brugge, your suggestion toggles between applications and not within PS opened windows.

Thanks for the advice guys. The solution is not what you guys suggested. But I found it by experimenting. Ok, to switch between opened windows WITHIN Photoshop is as follows:

CMD+SHIFT+`

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like you are letting focus shift from Photoshop to your operating system before you are hitting Cmd + Tab. Make sure that you don't click anywhere outside of Photoshop if Photoshop is not expanded to your full window.

> CMD+SHIFT+`

Strange, but hey, you can't argue with success.

You apparently posted your comment while I was fooling around with uploading a screen grab.

Glad you found the method. I'll make a note of it in case it comes up again.

CTRL + TAB also works.
