Windows 7: Using the Start Menu to switch between running programs

03 Sep 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I certainly am sorry I read this thread. Keyboard shorcuts addict or not, how much hunting and clicking is there to do if Excel, PowerPoint, Word and Photoshop are all open and all you have to do is hover the mouse over the button in the taskbar of the program you want to switch to, click on the small window that pops up and doing so without opening another instance of the program and gobbling up resources? And if a new program is needed, populating a program like Rocket Dock with frequently used programs is so seamless. Again, hover and click.
