If you are using Windows 7 it is obvious that you are expecting something new and interesting while working on it. One of the most tedious tasks that many users are bound to do is to navigate through the opened applications or Windows from the taskbar. In legacy days when Windows XP or Windows 2000 was mostly used Alt key + Tab key was used to cycle through the applications or Windows and whenever users were required to make the desired window active they just need to release a keys. Windows 7 however has much advanced features as compared to the legacy operating systems and these features offer better graphics while users navigate the opened applications in the taskbar. As a Windows 7 user if you want to use this new feature to cycle through the opened applications you are required to follow the steps given below:

  1. Logon to Windows 7 computer with any account as administrative privileges are not required.

  2. Open four or five Windows and applications and keep them minimized in the taskbar.

  3. To navigate through the minimized Windows you are required to press Windows key + t.

  4. You can press Windows key + tmultiple times to navigate through all the opened applications or Windows in the taskbar and if you want to make any window active you can press enter key when you reach there.

Note: Windows Aero feature is required to be enabled to follow above mentioned process.
