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

Window switcher instead of Alt tab?
I'm thinking of replacing alt tab entirely with the 3-d version. The only downside I see is that you can't use just 1 alt-tab to quickly switch to your last active window. Is there another reason to use the old alt-tab other than personal preference? It is quite a thumb cramper to curl under...
