Quickly Switching Between Open Programs

Switching Programs - Alt-TabEver needed to switch between open programs quickly? Simply hold down the Alt key and press the Tab key once. This will bring up a small window showing all of your open programs. Hit the Tab key again and you will see a rectangle box outlining the next program in the box. If you release the Alt & Tab keys, then the outlined program will pop to the front of your screen, ready for you.

If you have the small window open and accidentally pass by the program you need, then pressing the Shift & Tab keys, you can navigate backwards through the list. Remember that the Alt key must be held down until you have the program you want inside the outline. The Tab and Shift-Tab combination switch between them.

Switching Between Open Programs = Alt & Tab
