Windows 7: How to go to last page open

How to go to last page open

In Vista it was easy to flip around from program to program. It would simply go to the last open page of that software.

So if I flicked from Word to Explorer, that was easy. Even if there were many pages open, the last one opened was on top.

But with 7 it seems that this no longer works.

I have to go to the Word icon in the Toolbar and then choose which page I want - which is a pain, as I want the last one I was on.

Can anyone help with this?



Thanks

T

Hi T,

You can still switch between open programs windows in Windows 7 by using Alt+Tab or Win+Tab (Aero Flip 3D).

Yeah, thanks

In Vista it just goes to the last page or folder you were working on.

But in 7, I had to keep choosing which page to open.


Thanks!

Windows Flip (also known as 'Task Switcher') cycles through open windows, not programs - you can always access your most recently used window by pressing Alt+Tab once. The following windows appear in decreasing order of recentness, and can be accessed by continually pressing Tab while holding Alt.

Are we talking about the same thing? I apologize if I've misunderstood you.

Sure, did my explanation clear up the matter? Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

window flip - task switcher I noticed windows explorer doing something similar
when I press the back arrow it goes to the last open folder that I was working on.

I think this is a valid meme but I still miss the explorer up arrow
