Alt-Tab Options

by KostaKondratenko / December 1, 2009 1:10 PM PST

I click Alt-Tab to switch between programs but it doesn't let me click on the programs I have to go through each one ONE BY ONE BY ONE. You know how Windows Vista does it really good?

And dont' say "Buy Windows Vista" because that's a piece of crap and I never play games so I don't need Windows 7 either (not going to help Bill Gates become the richest person of all time nothing against capitalists).

So how can I do this. Surely this is simply.

Also is it possible to have Keyboard shortcuts for useful applications?

So for example I press Windows Key + P for Photoshop?

That would be awesome.

Thanks guys.

Do I make sense when I talk? I have drunk lots of V. No I haven't.

From a purely pragmatic standpoint, you've already pretty much ruled out the best solution to your problem.

And Bill Gates doesn't directly profit from you buying a copy of Vista or Win7. Indirectly he holds a large amount of Microsoft stock, so if that appreciates, his on paper wealth increases, and Microsoft stock tends to do well when they can report strong sales. But your buying one copy of Windows alone will not cause Gates' fortune to budge one way or the other.

Thanks that's great. I got Alt-Tab powertoy. Really appreciate it. I was just joking about Bill Gates, I'm Russian and we have a saying if it ain't broke don't fix it (Windows XP that is)

But then how

But then how do you progress as a society? Progress, pretty much by definition, means fixing something that isn't broken. If you stick to the status quo, nothing ever changes. True, it may not get worse, but it also won't get better.

There's even precedent for this in Russian history. Peter the Great was a very progressive Czar, compared to say, Ivan the Terrible... Which time period would you have preferred to live in? The one that saw the birth of St. Petersburg, or the continuation of the perpetual downtrodden suffering that is iconic with most of Russian history.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
