    Minimizing Windows - More Tricks
    There has been so much discussion about the OPT+CMD+click keystroke to hide all open windows, I thought I would publish the below little list, which is larger set of "hide windows" tricks. All of these are courtesy of the Mac OS X Missing Manual book, which I read some time ago:

    Hide All Open Windows:
    OPT+CMD+H / OPT+CMD+[click any open area of desktop]

    Hide the Current Window:
    CMD+H / OPT+[click any open area of desktop]

    Select Program from Dock, Hide All Others:
    OPT+CMD+[click on dock icon for program]

    Select Program from Dock, Hide Current Program:
    OPT+[click on dock icon for program]

    Enjoy!

    Indeed. I am going to upgrade my Linux to Mac Switcher's Guide and add it there as well.
