Flip customization

hello,

I have a small question, is there any information as to how to increase the size of the preview images on this screenshot?

There's a "Registry Hack" to tweak and increase the thumbnails size in taskbar, but i dunnot know if it can be done in the middle of the screen...
Maybe have a look in the tutorials forums...I did asked once but it had never be really answered so i think, no.

I know this one:

An alternative to add functions to the Alt tab is the Application VistaSwitcher

VistaSwitcher - Speed Up Windows Alt-Tab | Most Elegant And Powerful Task Switcher - NTWind Software

Despite the name it is compatible with win7 (and XP) and is free

well Barman58, thanks for this program, but there is sometning else. I have a microsoft mouse, it has an extra button and I assigned FLIP function to that. I'll try this program to see it works in this scenario.

The program should be compatible as the mouse button should be producing the command for Alt-Tab at the lowest driver/kernel layer and the software will see either the actual Key-press or the mouse's emulation of it as the same.

Will download it and get back to you on my findings.
It might be just what I was looking for. TIA

well here is the outcome;

unfortunately it does not work like it should. when I press the extra button on my mouse it activates its previews window, only not all the time. since it works like the Alt+TAB, at times it will just switch to the last active window, without ever showing the previews window.

I'm trying to see if I can sort it out via the preferences, but seems unlikely.

nice try tough, thanks.
