Editors' Review

This application is true to its name by offering quick access to active windows through right-click menu options, but it isn't overly impressive. Switch Window adds a list of your open windows to the right-click menu on the desktop and folders. From there, left-click to move your selected window to the top, or hit Ctrl and right-click to close the window. And that's about all there is to this tiny program. Casual users working with numerous windows who find it hard shifting from one to another may appreciate this freeware, but intermediate to advanced users looking for more organization and easier access to open windows will want to keep searching.

Developer's Description

Switch to the desired window using a menu, and close unwanted windows with a keystroke.
We all have faced a situation when we need to keep dozens of windows open -documents, e-mail client, several Web browser windows - all mess up the Taskbar resulting in poor computing experience and frustration. SwitchWindow is a tool that provides two important functions from virtually any spot you can right-click: it allows switching to the desired window using menu as well as closing unwanted windows with CTRL+Right Click combination.
