Ubuntu – macOS-like app switching in Plasma 5


In macOS, you can cycle through applications (note: not windows) by pressing ALT+TAB. However, when ALT+TABbing in Plasma 5, you cycle through all windows of all applications, which can get overwhelming when having multiple instances of one app.

I would like to be able to alt-tab between apps just like in macOS (switching between windows of the same app is already solved by ALT+`).

This is possible:

Go to system settings and then:

Window Management --> Task switcher --> Tick only one window per application
