Windows 7: Remapping Ctrl-Tab shortcut

Remapping Ctrl-Tab shortcut

Guys, I love and extensively use the Ctrl+Mouse-Left-Click shortcut. This shortcut directly switch to next open instance of a program if we click on its icon on toolbar.

I would like to perform this action without mouse.

And I would like to use Ctrl-Tab (which actually switchs to next child window of a Multiple Document Interface (MDI) program) to perform the exact same action as Ctrl+Mouse-Left-Click (for the foreground process, of course).

Is there a simple way to perform this?

Best regards,
Luis Santos

What Type Of Keyboard Do You Have?


What type of keyboard do you have? Some keyboards can have an additional downloaded software that you can use to create macros. For example, if you buy a Razor Keyboard, you can download Razor Synapse.

Im using a normal ordinary Lenovo keyboard.

Im use HotKeyz software by SkyEnergy ( seems down... ), but its not powerful to perform such thing.

Yes, Im aware of AutoKey, but it is a little bit complicated to my taste.

Cannot assign Ctrl+Alt+F as a keyboard shortcut
I like to use keyboard shortcuts to start programs running. I assigned Ctrl+Alt+F to open Firefox (pinned to the Start Menu), but it would not work. I can use Ctrl+Shift+F and the shortcut works. Normally, I would assume that Ctrl+Alt+F conflicts with one already in use, but pressing that key...
