program to hide windows in systray
« on: December 19, 2005, 01:31:37 AM »
I don't yet have the autohotkey skills to code this myself, or I would. A bit of background:
I am visually impaired, and use a program called Jaws for Windows to interact with the computer. The more windows I have open,
the more annoying it is to alt-tab through them.
It would be nice, as well as being able to hide certain windows, to be able to assign windows a number so that you could hit, for example,
alt+win+1...alt+win+= (or other hotkeys) to be able to switch to a predefined window that you defined with something like alt+win+shift+number, and if there was no window there, it would beep.
Thanks,
Tyler

 :) I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but it lets you activate windows using hotkeys:

WinStep - Step through groups of windows using hotkeys.

  Ctrl-0: Add a window to a Group0
  Ctrl-1: Add a window to a Group1
    ...

  Alt-0 : Show the next window of Group0
  Alt-1 : Show the next window of Group1
    ...

Features:
- User defined hotkeys and sounds.

You'll find the downloads and more info at Skrommel Software.
