How to Bring Back XP Style Alt-Tab Switching in Windows 7

Alt+Tab windows switching in Windows 7 is nice, but if you still love the old Windows XP style Alt+Tab windows switching, you can bring that feature to your Windows 7 also with a simple trick. No registry tweak or third party tool is required.

Here is how you can do that.

Hold down the left Alt key and then press and release the right Alt key, and then press Tab key (repeatedly) to select a desired opened window, keeping the left Alt key held down. That’s all.

But, if you want to restore the same good old Windows XP Alt+Tab windows switching, here is a simple registry tweak.

Run registry editor (press Win+R key and enter regedit.exe to open registry editor) and navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer.

There create a new DWORD (32value) and name it AltTabSettings. Set its value to 1, and then close the registry editor. Hope you’ll enjoy the post.
