Windows 7: A Keyboard / Shortcuts issue

A Keyboard / Shortcuts issue

Hi everyone,

I am curious to know if there is a keyboard shortcut like ALT + TAB that cycles through the windows of the active application only, similar to what Mas OS has with COMMAND + `.
I found a guide on this site, but it does not include that shortcut. It has ALT + ESCAPE which happens to cycle through all windows rather than just the active window. (Shortcut Keys for Windows 7[2]=Shortcuts).

That aside windows 7 is looking pretty good, since Apple decided my dual 2.0Ghz G5 is too old and not intel enough to run Snow Leopard I'm 99% sure I'm switching to a Windows 7 machine early next year. Anyway, that was unrelated, just had to rant about Apples contempt for its customers.

Thanks.

Hi itsn8o, welcome to the forums.

You can press CTRL+TAB and it will will tab-switch between the open windows within the given application.

Hope this helps

As Orbital Shark mentions, you can use CTRL+TAB. You can also use CTRL+F^ (depending on the application)

Thanks everyone.

Unfortunately CTRL + Tab isn't working in Office, neither is CTRL+F or CTRL+^ or CTRL+F^. Any other ideas or something i'm doing wrong?

Cheers.

Sorry. My Bad.

I was not paying attention. it supposed to be CTRL+F6 (I didn't release the shift key quickly enough, and was typing too fast).
