Mac minimizing gameFollow

I just recently changed to an Imac. I love the computer, but when I played the game on my PC, control/alt/delete would minimize the game and allow me to do other functions such as consult wow quest information without logging out of the game. Is there a way to do the same thing on a Mac?

Wait...I thought Macs were easier to use than PCs? Honestly I have no idea, have you tried Google?

I've never used it.

But in windows, the CTRL-ALT-DEL combo just brings up the task manager, switching to that from what ever window you are using currently. The real command is Alt-Tab.

In MAC, try this site here for commands:

It says that CMD-Tab is the open program switching command.

This greatly confuses me. I can see someone buying a macbook. I own lots of Apple devices, myself. I can't really fathom buying an Imac, particularly if you play games. I'm sure the CMD/tab thing suggested earlier probably works fine. I'd write a daemon that responded to me clapping my hands to do it, but I accept that's probably not the best solution.

If you are playing in full screen mode and just want to minimize to a smaller window mode just use the "apple key and the M" this will convert you to a normal window that you can size as you desire and move wherever you need to access other info. Hope that helps.
