Few weeks back, we blogged about Vista Switcher, a cool replacement tool to the default Alt + Tab feature. Here is a similar tool that helps you switch between opened Windows quickly.

Interesting thing is that Switcher doesn’t use Alt + Tab as the shortcut keys by default. Instead, it uses Windows + ~, Windows + Shift + ~, or the mouse to navigate between the windows.

Once you install and run this tool, an icon will be placed in the system tray area and the Switcher is ready to use. Use Windows + ~, Windows + Shift + ~, or the mouse to navigate between the windows. There are three views available in Switcher: Dock view, Grid view and Tile view.

You can also customize the animation and appearance of Switcher under settings option. You are allowed to customize the brightness, translation duration, selection duration and enable/disable window numbers.

Switcher Appearence

Unlike several other task switching tools, Switcher allows you customize the keyboard and mouse shortcuts. If you have opened tens of windows, you can use the search feature to quickly find the window. For example, you can type Firefox to find the Firefox browser.
