You're welcome mouser.

But...
While I was coding today, also to my own suprise, I redesigned the whole thing!

Changes by Winkie - 29 Nov 2009:
- Menu icons
- Added settings for trimming long titles
- Added GUI for exclusion list

Folks, please test it and tell what you think.
I tested this script in Win XP, so please test if it works in later Windows versions.

Looks good Winkie :Thmbsup:

is there a limit on keys that can be used as shortcuts?

I have an english OS (XP SP2) but my keyboard (& location) are german(y). Shortcuts often show in german e.g. STRG + ALT + AKUT (*see below) to which the response is

---------------------------
AltTabFingertips.ahk
---------------------------
Error: "AKUT" is not a valid key name.  The current thread will exit.

Line#
051: }
052: MI_SetMenuItemBitmap(hTrayMenu, 10, 8)  
054: Gosub,ReadIni
055: Gosub,SetHotkey
056: Gosub,ShowTrayTip
057: Menu,ATF_Menu,Add
058: Return
---> 061: Hotkey,%ATF_Hotkey%,ShowATF,ON
062: Return
065: RebuildMenu()  
067: MI_ShowMenu("ATF_Menu")  
068: Return
071: WinActivate,%A_ThisMenuItem%
072: Return
075: if bShowDesktop  

---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

note it doesnt appear to have a problem with STRG (Control) so maybe it's not a problem with the language?
I tried  ALT + ^  [Zirkumflex] - as that's just above my TAB key (so I could have the best of both) but that not accepted either.

* AKUT = ´
As a mostly left handed mouser something like the example above [RightAlt(which shows as Ctrl+Alt)+´] would be ideal for me on this keyboard.

Apparently it is a language-problem, which occurs when a hotkey-control is used with AutoHotkey . See: Hotkey control returns wrong value

Does the script work if you change the following setting in the ATF_Settings.ini while AltTabFingertips is not running: Hotkey= ( =hotkey: CTRL and  ´ ) ???

I don't have time to research it furder right now and I don't know if there is an workaround.

So I hope this helps,

Winkie

Argh crap. My post contains two errors. I was in a hurry and not paying attention. I'm verrry sorry. :-[
Should have been:
Does the script work if you change the following setting in the ATF_Settings.ini while AltTabFingertips is not running: Hotkey= ( =hotkey: CTRL and  ´ ) ???

If it does not work you can look at the second to last post in the linked AutoHotkey thread and try those. (You 'll need the characters after the arrows)

Regards,
Winkie

Good, really.
Can you make Preferences to other keys like z or x ? As it now only Up, Down, Left and Right are available.
I try recording with AutoIt  - AU3Record.exe (ver 31.1) and it doesn't work.
