A cool "thing" I accidentally found out

Just now, I was on my laptop doing different things. Usually, I use ALT + TAB to go back and forth between the different windows I have open. I accidentally hot the Windows logo button + TAB and something cool happened. I can't explain it. Check it out for yourself!

It only seems to work in Windows 7 though. It may also work in Vista also, but not sure as I do not have a Vista computer.

Windows Key + Tab
Cycle through the buttons on the Task Bar.

Windows Key + Pause I use all the time.

Yes, in Windows XP.

In order for me to use the Pause button, I also have to push FN. So, when I push the Windows key + FN + Pause, it brings me to my System in the Control Panel. Is that what yours does?

Re: A cool "thing" I accidentally found out

This is the Aero Flip 3D feature first introduced in Vista. Your system must be Aero capable to have this.

Anyway, this is an awesome feature & I use it all the time.

I would have set up all sorts of other shortcuts to aid my laziness were it not for the fact that the amount of work would completely defeat the object!
