When browsing in Opera, occasionally a new window opens instead of a new tab, or in Word if I have two documents open at the same time, they are open in two different windows. Is there an easy keyboard shortcut to use that switches between the two windows? On a PC, I think it was ALT+TAB. I know that I can 4-finger swipe on the trackpad, but I'd prefer to be able to do it without moving from the keyboard. Thanks.

To switch between different windows within the same application, it's Cmd + ~ (that's the tilde key, right above the Tab key). To switch between different applications, it's Cmd + Tab.

Thank you, been looking for that command since I began using a Mac. Is there a site that lists all of these shortcuts so that I can keep it as a handy reference. Most of the time, I don't know WHAT I'm searching for..

Yes, here is a list of shortcuts.

And a sometimes handy shortcut that I don't think is on that list is cmd + shift + ] to move to the next tab to the right in Safari. And if you want to move to the previous one to the left cmd + shift + [
No idea if it works in other web browsers that use tabs.
