Windows 7: Switcher question

Switcher question

Hey guys, I am using switcher, and I'm wondering if I can make it so that I can press my shortcut button, expose will stay on, then to close it I press my shortcut button again. Don't really like how I have to hold down my shortcut to see the expose. Thanks

Switcher means Win+Tab ? Then there is a way .

Switch Between Windows - Flip 3D Shortcut

Right click on the desktop > New > Shortcut

In the create shortcut dialog box , write "%systemroot%\System32\rundll32.exe DwmApi #105" (copy & paste)

For the icon, Right click on the new shortcut > Properties > Change icon

In the box write "%Windir%\explorer.exe" and you will get your desired icon there . Press OK , Apply , and again OK .

Now right click on it , and select " Pin to the Taskbar " and delete the original . One click, it will stay on, next click, you are back .

Oops ... sorry for misunderstanding

I have never used Switcher for Vista . Doesnot it makes your Expose stay on like this image ?

Use WinExpose.zip . Download the zip, extract it in a real location , run the exe , and it will be there in your system trey . Now configure it at your will like it

Thanks for the help =) i extracted the winexpose folder in the .zip, extracted it with winzip to programfiles(x86), but when I run the .exe, it tells me that I'm missing the .lang file. Any ideas? When I click ok and use my hotkey activate it, it goes halfway into expose then quickly out and the program freezes
