I'm curious if there is a way to get Win7's native flip 3d to display more like Expose or a ring switcher?

It would improve my workflow drastically if I could more clearly see all my windows at once.

UPDATE: It may be part of the SetPoint software... I'm not sure. But while configuring my mouse I noticed a function called "Application Switcher". It works pretty good.

There's something like that in the MS IntelliPoint sofware, but not as slick looking as Exposé. – paradroid Oct 14 '10 at 22:30
If the SetPoint software answered your question, then why don't you post that as an answer and accept it in a few days if you don't get anything better by then? That way, people will know you already solved your problem, and the question won't remain unanswered forever. – Sasha Chedygov Oct 15 '10 at 0:24

Not natively, but you can install Switcher (free) or TopDesk (commercial) to emulate the Exposé effect. A quick search reveals several other programs that do this, if neither of the ones I mentioned suit your fancy.

Note that I haven't found a single Windows program to implement Exposé as flawlessly as Macs do, but I'm sure they are good enough for your purposes.

Switcher was ok... but it did earn me a couple BSODs last time I tried it. – Kayle Oct 14 '10 at 22:11

The SetPoint software from Logitech seems to be adequate. It's functionally similar to expose but it's a bit sluggish. Still, the best solution I've seen so far.
