Chapter 1. Mac Os X Annoyances > APPLICATION SWITCHING À LA MAC OS 9

APPLICATION SWITCHING À LA MAC OS 9

The Annoyance:

I've never gotten used to the schizophrenic behavior of application switching when running Classic and Mac OS X native applications together. When I'm running a Classic application, the good ol' application switcher menu is there in the upper-right corner, but it disappears when I switch to a Mac OS X-native program. I wish the app switcher menu would just stay put.

The Fix:

You can add a Classic-style application switcher menu to Mac OS X with a shareware program called ASM (http://www.vercruesse.de). It also includes the Hide and Show commands of the Mac OS 9 application switcher menu. With ASM installed, an application menu is always there when you switch between Classic and native apps.
