I primarily use Windows XP and tend to have lots of windows open, so of course I routinely have to resort to Alt+Tab. It works just fine, but there are a couple features found in Vista/7 and/or OS X that I would really like:
- Clicking on a window icon should switch to that window (or highlight it, so that when you let go of Tab it would switch to it)
- Pressing Q or some other key should close the highlighted window, as in OS X
I do not need any other fancy things such as window previews/screenshots, 3D effects and so on that just slow things down.
Are there any decent Alt+Tab replacements that provide the above?
I am aware of a few, such as the Alt-Tab replacement PowerToy, but most of them do not provide a way to close the window, and are slower due to window previews. They are also usually ugly - not that the default XP switcher is a lovely sight, but it looks decently enough and at least it's quick and functional. Ideally I would want something that looks/works exactly like it, but with the above two features.
If no such replacement exists, I might consider writing it myself.
