In Windows 7 I can not switch to last app using a keyboard shortcut (possibly ALT+TAB).

Current scenario: I have 1 Word 2007 document opened. I start Total Commander and open another Word document with it - it opens in a new Word window. Now I want to switch back to Total Commander using a keyboard shortcut. I use ALT+TAB, but 1st Word document that was opened is brought to front instead of Total Commander.

Desired scenario: I have 1 Word 2007 document opened. I start Total Commander and open another Word document with it - it opens in a new Word window. I use a keyboard shortcut (once only) that brings me back to Total Commander.

Is there a way I can switch back to Total Commander using a keyboard shortcut?

What happens when you hit alt-tab twice? –  BrianAdkins Apr 20 '13 at 14:09

Doing alt-tab twice works, but I want to only use it once. Seems my "bug" only is relevant to MS Office apps which have already some windows of themselves opened... but it just sucks. –  Kozuch Apr 20 '13 at 16:33

Use Alt+Tab then use directional keys(up, down, left, right) to navigate to the window you want

Not very efficient if its in the middle of a dozen or so applications. –  AthomSfere Apr 20 '13 at 15:49
