Alt-Tab Replacemnet

A group conversation over a math project led me to this new task switcher, a very cool little power toy for Windows XP that resembles somewhat the task switching in Mac OS X, with a window preview to help you figure out which window you actually want to switch to, which is especially useful for when you have multiple instances of the same application open. I suggest it to any user of Windows XP.

    I am not totaly sure what is going on but I get really stupid things happeing when I try to tab over to windows that are currently in my taskbar. They come out of the tast bar but are still minimized! When I click the “make big” button it does not change!
    ughh…

    You’re right – when you have the window minimized, the preview doesn’t work. Oh well. Don’t minimize stff I guess?

    I realized that as soon as I got it. I like not minimizing things because it reminds me more of my friends that use Mac OS X because they never have anything minimized. I personaly like the new alt tab feture and I use it all the time. Way to go Bill, youre not completely useless.
