In Windows 7, could the "cycle windows", by default bound to LALT+TAB, be re-binded to another combination (without altering the keyboard layout itself).

You can use AutoHotkey to use something else instead of Alt+Tab.

Would look something like this IMHO:

;lets you use left control + J as if it was alt tab
LControl & j::AltTab

I'm sorry, I meant the opposite. I wanted to get the "ALT+TAB behaviour" hitting another combination of keys. Can AutoHotkey do that, i.e. raise the event "cycle windows"? – o0'. Apr 28 '12 at 9:00
changed my answer to show that. – Cilvic Apr 28 '12 at 19:43
