IDEA: Switch apps with mouse (like ALT+TAB)
« on: November 18, 2008, 07:55:21 PM »
Hi, guys,

I'm a newbee here.
Is it possible to switch between applications with RightMouseButton+scroll like ALT+TAB?
Opera browser has this feature for cycling through tabs.

This idea came to mind after I found nice and fun AltEdge.
Thanks in advance!

put these lines into your AHK script and it will do the trick or you can use the compiled exe.

#SingleInstance force

~RButton & WheelDown::AltTab
~RButton & WheelUp::ShiftAltTab

Seems like I'm getting into..

~LButton & WheelDown::AltTab
~LButton & WheelUp::ShiftAltTab

This works slightly better for me, since RB (while long-pressing) evokes context menu in Total Commander (short-press selects file).

the script sends a right-click button click each time when it's invoked. that's why the context-menu is triggered in TotalCmd but it's good that you found a work-around. :)
