Switch to the Last Active Window in Windows 7

[center]Switch to the Last Active Window in Windows 7[/center]

Introduction:
The new Windows 7 taskbar’s Aero Peek feature, with the live thumbnails of every window, is awesome. But What a pain when you have nine windows open of the same type, then you have to find the one you want by browsing every thumbnails.

we’ll use this quick registry hack to make the normal click switch to the last open window. If you still want to see the thumbnail list, just hover your mouse over the button for half a second to see the full list. You click on it and it was the wrong page then just continue clicking and you will rotate through all open windows.

How to use it:
    1. The first thing you must do is open Note Pad and copy and paste these lines in it.
    2. Then save it to whatever name you want but with the extension .reg
    3. Double click it and accept to write to registry.
    4. Re-boot.

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"LastActiveClick"=dword:00000001



To undo the change

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"LastActiveClick"=-



Enjoy! :-bd
