How to switch between different windows in the same frame without using mouse?

When I press Cmd-Tab and switch from some other application to Emacs, how to go to one window and subsequently switch to another window in the same frame without using mouse?

You should try the tutorial with C-h t. – Daimrod Feb 27 '12 at 7:37

C-x o for other-window is the most basic way to do this. You might want, as I have, to rebind something else to that (C-tab), or to investigate some of the other window movement options - the windmove library is useful for directional movement.
