Use Simple Keyboard Shortcut For Activating And Holding The Tasks Switching State
Windows 7 and Vista users can switch between windows of open programs/ applications by using keyboard shortcuts like “Win+Tab” and “Alt+Tab”. The keyboard shortcut “Win+Tab” shows an Aero Flip 3D thumbnail preview or live snapshot to allow you to switch between open applications whereas “Alt+Tab” uses a standard 2D switching UI (User Interface).
However, both these keyboard shortcuts accomplish the same task of switching between open applications and exit themselves the moment you leave the hotkeys displaying the selected window.
If you wish to have a slow review of the open applications before you choose to display a particular window, you may activate task switching UI and hold it in the same state until you click on the thumbnail of the preferred window to switch to.
You can do it by pressing and holding the “Ctrl” key while you use the keyboard shortcuts “Win+Tab” and “Alt+Tab”. The task switching UI will remain still even if you release the pressed keys. You may use “Tab” key to move forward and “Shift+Tab” to move backward for navigating within the task switching UI.
In order to glance through the open windows, you simply need to scroll your mouse wheel. To exit this task switching state, you may select any of the windows or just press the “Escape” key.
Use CopyPasteTool To Paste More Text At Once
Most of us make use of CTRL + C and CTRL + V keyboard shortcuts on Windows OS to copy and paste the content. The selected item is copied and stored in the clipboard by pressing CTRL + C keys.
This copied content is then pasted when you press CTRL + V keys. Windows has the ability to store recently copied content in the clipboard. However, by pressing CTRL + C for the second time, Windows overwrites this content replacing the previous one. Thus, we could not get the previous copied content.
Now, by using a special tool named CopyPasteTool, you could copy and store the contents in the clipboard. You could save contents up to 11 times and paste all of them any number of times. CopyPasteTool is a very simple and useful freeware utility and it comes without any GUI. All you have to do is just execute the file once. When you execute this program for the first time, a small icon will be placed in system tray. This allows you to save some more values, up to 11 times when you opt to use the pasting function.
As usual, you could use CTRL + C and CTRL + V buttons to copy and paste the content. You have to press V couple of times to paste the previously copied text. When you press V the first time holding the CTRL key, the most recent copied content will be pasted and consequently second time, it will paste the second most recent value and so on. This useful software is absolutely free to download. Surely, you will enjoy in executing the copy and paste functions with this tool rather than Windows default function.
