9.2. The Application Menu

 < Day Day Up > 

The ability to hide an application is particularly useful for applications that you don't frequently need to interact with, such as the OSXvnc server. The Hide option , found in the application menu of most Mac OS X applications (for example, OSXvnc Hide OSXvnc), can usually be invoked with the -H keyboard shortcut to hide the currently running application.

To un-hide the application, simply click on the application's Dock icon or use the application switcher (-Tab) to locate the application. The Hide Others menu selection (sometimes available with the keyboard shortcut Option--H) hides all other open applications.

Finally, the Show All menu option, which is located in the application menu, brings all running applications out of hiding.
