As with most computer-related tasks, there are a variety of ways to switch between the windows you have open on your computer. Some people reach for the mouse, point to the Taskbar, and then click the button for the window they want.. While that works perfectly fine, it’s definitely one of the slower options.
If you’re keyboard person, like me , you are probably very familiar with the [Alt] + [Tab] trick. That’s better but sometimes hard to tell which window is the one you actually want and you wind up in the wrong place.
If you’d like to learn a new, potentially better trick, try using [Alt] + [Esc] to instantly jump to the next open window. Just hold the [Alt] key and tap [Esc] once and bingo: the next window appears. Not the one you want? Tap again and off you go to the next window.
Did you already know about [Alt]+[Esc]? What is your method of choice for switching between windows?
Thanks to Fred Schell for sharing the [CTRL] + [TAB] trick which will cycle you through open windows/tabs of the same program. For example multiple web browser tabs or Word documents, etc. Give it a try!
