Idea: Microsoft Default Windows Management

Idea: Microsoft Default Windows Management

Right clicking the taskbar in windows allows you to use the "Cascade windows", "Show the windows side by side" and the "Show windows stacked" command. These features are in Vista, but they are similar to Xp's. Is it possible to assign a shortcut key for these two commands for windows Vista? Such as using the ctrl+shift+1 ,ctrl+shift+2,  ctrl+shift+3 or these three items.

 :) Try ArraWin!

Press Ctrl+Shift+1 through 3 to cascade or arrange windows vertically and horizontally

Thanks for this, works like a charm. :)

I forgot to mention something. Could you also make ctrl shift 4 to undo the cascade or tile vertically and horizontally?
