The best alternative to Stage Manager is Shortcuts App for Mac

stage manager

On June 6, Apple presented macOS Ventura and among the existing novelties is Stage Manager. It is the new way of managing the different existing windows on our Mac. To be able to test this new functionality we must be developers and officially. That is, registered in the project that Apple has for them. Right now we are in the beta phase, testing the operating system. If you don't want to wait for the final version to come out, there are several alternatives, but one of the best and most accessible is the one owned by Apple itself, what are shortcuts

Apple's shortcuts for Mac allow us to control windows. We just have to start the application and point to the + button to be able to add a new shortcut. It works in a similar way to how it does it on the iPhone, so if you have any doubts you can consult the details created in this blog post. One thing we have to keep in mind is that the shortcuts application once created and started, will run automatically, so it is important to "waste" a little time to do it well and above all thought out. It is easy to believe in this type of task that we have everything well done, but at the moment of truth we realize that we have not achieved our goal and that the shortcuts do not do what we want. That is why you have to know well what you are doing and check before using.

we can have the following options in the app:

  • move window
  • Resize

These may be the most practical and the ones we use the most on a day-to-day basis because we all know that working with a split screen and having two or more applications is a luxury and even more so if we can automatically set the position of each one of them . Up, left... But we can also determine the coordinates where we want the windows.

  • Find windows
  • split screen apps

It's all a matter of trying and seeing what hThere are alternatives to Sage Manager that has not yet arrived and that even if it arrives we may not be able to have it because it does not support the update to macOS Ventura.
