As its name implies, Alt-Tab Replacement is a handy single-function utility for Windows XP that enhances the Alt-Tab functionality. It couldn't be easier to get started--you'll find the new functionality as soon as the program is installed--but we suggest that you take a look at the brief description and instructions in the Read Me file. The program adds a new way to find what you're looking for in your open windows. When you use the Alt-Tab keys to view open applications, you'll see a preview of the window in addition to the program name and icon. You can also quickly go back and forth on the list of running programs by pressing or releasing the Shift key with the Alt-Tab keys. Windows XP users will surely appreciate the convenience and additional flexibility that this freebie provides.
