Being developer, I have 20+ tabs are in Alt-Tab view [mostly from 4-5 applications]. In OSX, you can switch between different windows of sample application using shortcut. Is there any such shortcut available in Windows.

Another biggest problem is if I alt-tab, all of these 20 tabs are present without any grouping. Is there a way to group them by application and navigate?

  • There is the ability to make multiple "desktops" in windows 10. I'm not sure how it behaves with the alt-tab menu because i have some mods that may be interfering, but it might be something to look into. – Kevin Mar 3 '17 at 22:35
  • Got the same problem. Ubuntu got `alt-`` for that function, and I am also looking for an alternative on my office machine which runs windows 10. – cytsunny Aug 24 '17 at 4:09

Finally I found free tool for the same. https://neosmart.net/EasySwitch/. This is quite lightweight and I am living with this product for more than 3 months.

  • Does this work on Windows 10? I've installed Easy Switch but alt + tab is behaving the same default way. Are there any extra settings to be made? If yes, then how? As the app doesn't provide any means to do it. Just an installer. – Ankush Raghuvanshi Oct 14 at 5:20
