I have two opened Windows applications in Windows 7 which I would like to switch between them using a single keyboard shortcut, either one key to switch between them or a separate key for each. Basically instead of clicking the app icon on the taskbar, to do it through a keyboard hotkey.

How can this be done? I don't want to use alt-tab to switch because I have several other opened apps.

If you have them on your Windows taskbar you can easily switch to them using:

Windows + 1 or 2

(given that they are the most left icons on your taskbar)

Another solution is using AutoHotKey, but I'll leave it to John T to tell you how to do so – Ivo Flipse Feb 11 '10 at 8:17
