Longtime subscriber Ed Pilarczyk, after accidentally finding one of the new features of Windows Vista and Windows 7, wrote to ask:
Hey Terry, As usual…GREAT newsletter. Question: I am running Vista Ultimate x64, 8 Gb, and an NVidia GeForce 9500 GS.
Normally when I hit alt-tab to switch windows, I get a thumbnail view to cycle through.
Yesterday, when I did this, Big windows appeared mid screen. They were on an angle, and were easy to read. I could cycle through them and select the window I want.
Today it is back to the normal small preview.
What gives? How can I set alt-tab to the large preview?
I wrote a quick response back to Ed, telling him:
Yesterday, you pressed the key combination WindowsKey-Tab instead of Alt-Tab.
Interesting difference, isn’t it?
Terry…YOU”RE A GENIUS!!
