A tiny utility cuts through the constant friction some users experience with window layering in the modern macOS Finder.

John Siracusa Front and Center
  • Expert Rating

    4.50 / 5


  • You can switch between pre-Mac OS and modern window layering
  • Has an exclusive tab into which you can add apps

Bottom Line

Front and Center will appeal to those of us with memories of Flock of Seagulls haircuts and Ronald Regan as president, but also new users who just find Apple's window layering blocks how we like to work in macOS.
