In Windows, you can switch between open windows using
Alt + Tab. However, when you have more than 2 open windows, you might find yourself pressing
Alt + Tab over and over again to find the window you want to switch to. I was looking for a solution to this problem and found Switcheroo. It is a task switcher for Windows where I can switch to another window by partially typing the name of that application and pressing
Alt + Space. This default shortcut can be changed to whatever you wish in the Options of the tool.
Alt + Tabshortcut and that is what I preferred. This did mean that switching between a pair of windows quickly
Alt + Tab-ing went out the window. I have to now do
Alt + Tab+
Enter. It displays the candidates in a dropdown so you can see and learn how to use this. For most applications, I just need a single character, for example to switch to an open Firefox window:
Alt + Tab->
downkeys) and choose their window, this tools helps there too.
I like this task switcher and cannot imagine working without this now. The best part is that I can switch to any open window I want with a deterministic number of keypresses, with my eyes closed in fact! 😁
Tried with: Switcheroo v0.10.0.131
