How to Toggle Your Windows Screen


PC users can multitask in many active programs on the computer screen with ease, but managing multiple windows might cause some frustration and difficulty. When a user opens a program to show in a window, it remains stationary until moved around on the desktop. After so many programs are open, the screen gets cluttered. A student or office worker may lose productivity attempting to switch between programs to perform activities. If you have Windows 7, you can use a feature in the operating system to better manage and switch between windows.

  • Press the "Windows" logo and "Tab" keys on the keyboard to activate "Flip 3D."

  • Hold down the "Windows" logo key, but repeatedly press and depress the "Tab" key to toggle or flip between windows.

  • Roll the wheel in the center of the mouse, if available, as an alternative way to toggling windows, while still holding down the "Windows" logo key.

  • Release the "Windows" logo and "Tab" keys when the desired program window is in front of the other windows.

Tips & Warnings

  • Alternatively, for Windows XP, Vista and 7, press the "Alt" and "Tab" keys to toggle between program windows. Hold down the "Alt" key while repeatedly pressing and depressing the "Tab" key.
