Editors' Review

+

For those who've made the jump to Windows Vista but don't like the angled multipane view, Switcher offers a familiar and less-jarring alternative.

Using fully customizable hot keys, you can activate the app with nothing more than a single keystroke or mouse gesture. The currently active program will then drop slightly on the screen and the other active apps will appear above it in minimized form. The opacity of the inactive programs can be tailored to your tastes, as can nearly everything else about Switcher. Dock padding and location, mouse trigger corner, transition duration, view of minimized versions of the inactive apps, and more can be adjusted. You can even organize the Options menu alphabetically or by category.

Strengthened by a fast install and lightweight footprint, Switcher is a fun program for those who love modifying their PC experience to suit their tastes. Who doesn't?

"A Stroke of Genius!"

May 13, 2010  |  By raqiti

 |  Version: Switcher 2.0.0.2705

Pros

Excellent program from conception to finish. Also allows one-view of all your running programs while they are running.

Cons

None that I know so far and I tested it extensively

Summary

Bottom line - switching between programs and tracking your programs as they run - cannot do better. Should be included in the next release of Windows.
