Alt+Tab on the bottom left corner
« on: November 21, 2012, 06:55:43 AM »
This follows the idea of Skrommel's AltEdge
but instead of showing the Alt-Tab menu when the mouse is on the left edge of the screen,
it would show a listview with the name and icon of every app,
besides i'd like the left bottom corner instead of the entire left edge.

BTW other nice apps by Skrommel are SmallMeasure and DetachVideo

I think this would be my preferred way to launch this alternative alt-tab menu:

The top-edge (with 1 secs delay) instead of the left-edge,
and instead of automatic cycle through, one could move through the listview depending on whether the user moves the mouse rightwards or leftwards (down and up on the listview)

The best I can come up with is a window with a list of visible windows like this: http://cl.ly/image/1E3u472R1X1n

When one is double clicked, it activates it. I am not able to get the icons for each app though, sorry. :-(

Thanks for trying!
oops I've just read the post from which Skrommer got the idea for his program,
and there seems to be something very similar to my request:
http://www.donationc...20.msg83272#msg83272
and the direct link to the code mentioned by Lanux128 can be found here
Ah maybe I should try to get back to coding, I used to code in fbsl long time ago.

I've tried the above ahk script on my pc with vista and does not work,
could anyone at least to edit Skrommel's script so that it works when the mouse is on the left edge but adding a delay of 800 miliseconds and scrolling the list of icons one by one by means of the mouse-wheel (sending alt+right/left) instead of automatic cycling.

Edit:

So far, the best apps I've been able to find an try are
VistaSwitcher
AltTab++ (AltTabPP)
