Window Switcher

Activate Window Switcher is essentially a highly specialized macro action that enables you to show, hide, and minimize windows. By triggering the macro, Window Switcher enables you to switch between all open windows in the current application. Once the switching window appears, you may select the window to activate, and Window Switcher will bring it to the front.

FIXME: This is NOT working for me running Keyboard Maestro 9.2 on macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave) – JMichaelTX
* Navigate the window list – Press or keys

By default, Keyboard Maestro creates a Activate Window Switcher macro in the “Switcher Group” Macro Group, triggered by CTRLTAB. You can disable this Macro by selecting the Switcher Group, then selecting the Window Switcher macro and and clicking the button below the Macros list.
