Scenario: I have open Firefox A and Firefox B and putty A and putty B.

I'd like to be able to attach a custom global keyboard shortcut for focusing either of these windows. For example, set Ctrl+Alt+F2 to focus putty B (other shortcuts are suitable, too).

I can set the title of the windows if must, or I can launch the processes in a specific order. Or anything that works even for one session (PIDs, etc.).

On Mac this is said to be possible with Witch but how to do it with Windows?

In Windows 7 and 8 the first 10 icons on the task bar have the shortcuts Win+1 through Win+0. – Brian Nov 22 '13 at 8:08
@Brian this is a great option, wish I'd thought of that! Grouped windows are cycling is there a way to directly address them? I suppose I can just turn off grouping. For record: Answers about more bendable options are still welcome of course! :) – n611x007 Nov 22 '13 at 9:53
