Alt-Tab Thingy is for Windows XP, Vista & 7 only. (Click here for Vista & 7 tweak, if you don't want to try ATT).

If you are not familiar with the Alt-Tab task switcher in Windows, it's a keyboard short-cut (hot-key) to enable fast switching between applications/windows. This feature has been in Windows since Windows 3.0 and is largely unchanged since Windows '95! Alt-Tab Thingy is a replacement to add brand new features to help you switch tasks faster and more efficiently than ever before!

As of October 11, 2005, Nymithium Technologies has agreed to take over Alt-Tab Thingy development.

Original idea, design and programming by Stephen Clark.

Thank you Steve for making this app and Nymithium Technologies will continue your tradition to make this the best freeware app of this type available.
