    hi guys

    i've been using a PC for my entire life and just recently converted to macbook. i love the look and feel but it's a hassle learning new shortcuts and stuff.

    anywho, here are my questions that i hope you smart guys and gals could answer.

    1. is there a mac equivalent to alt+tab?
    2. is there a shortcut to auto-maximize or auto-maximize?

    3. iChat specific - or perhaps not? Is there a way to tab from IM window to IM window?
    4. iChat - is there a way to close an IM window using the keyboard?
    5. iChat - is it possible to set iChat so others cannot see you when you are typing?

    6. Is there a way to minimize all programs and just show the desktop?

    more questions to come! i will update with peoples' answers so other mac newbies are not confused

    thanks for the help!

    Command + Tab = Alt + Tab for Windows.

    Command + M = Minimize or Double Click anywhere at the top.

    If you look at the thing I attached, it has a bunch of keyboard shortcuts for Mac OS X. (you might have to zoom in a lot.
