Enables Windows 7 like task-switching hotkeys on XP with ActivateBynum

In Windows 7 and Vista you can quickly launch programs that are on the taskbar by just pressing shortcut key[Windows] key and an appropriate number [1, 2, 3, 4…] on your keyboard. That is, if the application is in the 5th position press [Windows] + [5] and so on.

However, for XP you need special software. ActivateByNum is such a program (portable, free) that will help you to do the same in XP.

Windows Logo Key +1 switches to the first window on the taskbar and Windows Logo Key +2 the second, etc.

For a collapsed group of window buttons, repeatedly pressing the same Windows Logo Key +n combination (where n is the position of the group on the taskbar) will cycle through each window in the group.

However, you can launch only 10 programs (0 – 9) in this way. Download ActivateByNum [home page]
