Mouse Switcher: Use Mouse Instead of Keyboard To Switch Between Open Windows

Mouse Switcher is a useful little tool designed to improve your experience and productivity while using your Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC. This tool can be used as a replacement for the good old Alt + Tab command for switching between open windows. As its name implies, you can use your mouse to switch between open Windows.


Mouse Switcher is simple to use. Once it is installed, you just hover your mouse pointer over the Taskbar and spin the scroll wheel to open the task switcher and select the window you want. To cancel switching, simple click on the taskbar or press the escape button.

Click less Switching is another feature of this tool. Once an application window is selected, simply move the mouse outside the taskbar area to open the window. This feature is enabled by default and can be easily turned off using the configuration manager (see above image).

Features of Mouse Switcher
  •  Switch between open applications by scrolling over Windows taskbar.
  •  Avoid using keyboard to switch applications. 
  • Totally unobtrusive and seamless integration with the operating system
  • Dramatically low memory consumption and CPU usage. 

Note: Mouse Switcher doesn’t replace the Alt + Tab command, so you can still use your keyboard if you wish so.

Mouse Switcher can be downloaded from source here.
