Is there an application that will group arbitrary windows into a single window (in MS Windows). For example, I'd like to have two notepads in a single window side by side or a notepad and a HTML preview of the file I'm editing side by side.

I'd like to be able to alt-tab to that group of windows rather than have to alt-tab twice to get the on screen at one.

I'd like something like an IDE environment where I can have arbitrary applications as the panels, such as a VIM panel, a powershell console in another panel etc. ConEmu is able to load simple windows into a tab, I'm looking for something similar which has more layout options.

Is there anything like this?

Also, there are proper tiling managers, but I don't want to tile all my open applications.

Latest versions of ConEmu has SplitPane feature. You may start your predefined tasks with preferrable split (grid) configuration, or start new tabs splitted manually. – Maximus Sep 30 '12 at 13:38

TaskSpace can group several applications together into a single window, that can be ALT+TABed, etc...
