In windows 7, when you press alt tab you get a list of windows and can cycle through them effectively. Is there a way to close the window you are currently on instead of actually going to that window and pressing the "x" or alt f4.

There isn't a way to close the processes while in that view. –  Ramhound May 31 '13 at 20:35
There are some custom made alt-tabs replacing tools out there though. –  R-U-Bn Apr 9 '14 at 21:27

By default, this is not possible as it is not programmed default functionality within Windows - however, there are a few 3rd party apps out there which extend the functionality of alt-tab.

That said, I am not sure I would trust most of them, so tread carefully.
