When one points cursor to a grouped taskbar button, it gets expanded displaying previews of the grouped windows. Is there any keyboard hotkey that can do the same for the active window? The purpose is to quickly navigate through the windows in a group.

I know about Ctrl+ mouse click, but am looking for keyboard-only solution and I want to see previews (as with Alt + Tab).


Review the windows keyboard shortcuts

You may want Win+T orWin+{number} to select the taskbar or item in the taskbar, and then up arrow to see the expansion of group.

  • Thanks. Somehow I have missed that Win+{number} is close to what I need. The only drawback is that I need to pay attention to the position of an app on the taskbar. I suppose there is no shortcut to act on the active app directly? – user318054 Aug 16 '18 at 12:49
  • You can press Win+T multiple times, and that will switch focus to each app in turn. – WireGuy Aug 16 '18 at 13:59
  • Well, that's far from quick. – user318054 Aug 16 '18 at 15:02
