26 Shortcuts for VistaSwitcher (Windows)  [edit]

minimize Hide all  maximize Show all


is an elegant and powerful task management utility for Windows OS. Once installed, it replaces the default Windows Alt-Tab dialog with a nice box that shows a list of all running tasks, with their names and preview snapshots, and enables the user to take actions on them using the mouse and keyboard shortcuts. With just one click, you can switch tasks, minimize, maximize, restore the main window, or close the process.

*NOTE: Keyboard shortcuts can be reassigned in the program's Preferences menu.
