VistaSwitcher 1.1.5

VistaSwitcher is an elegant and powerful task management utility for Windows OS. Once installed, it replaces the default Windows Alt-Tab dialog with a nice box that shows a list of all running tasks, with their names and preview snapshots, and enables the user to take actions on them using the mouse and keyboard shortcuts. With just one click, you can switch tasks, minimize, maximize, restore the main window, or close the process.

The main advantage of VistaSwitcher is a brand new Alt-Tab switching window. Unlike to the stadard Alt-Tab, VistaSwitcher shows a full-sized preview of each task window and easy-to-read relevant lists of tasks running, all shown clearly with titled icons so you can find the one you need within seconds. Conveniently, you don’t have to press the Alt-Tab repeatedly to finally select the required application. Navigation is much easier (and more intuitive, too); simply hover your mouse over the desired task or select it with the arrow keys on your keyboard. With VistaSwitcher, finding the right window is a breeze! Also, you can switch between open windows with only the mouse. No keyboard shortcuts required! Just hold your right mouse button down and scroll the wheel up or down to select the window you want.

This is a nice Alt-Tab replacement but it lacks the ability to Alt-Tab to the desktop.

just use WinKey+D to get to the desktop and then press it again to restore the windows you had up previously
