SmartTab is a free replacement for Alt-Tab that allows users to jump between screens without having to use the Windows alt-tab dialogue. With this free simple tabbing application, you’ll be able to view all Windows icons and full titles, with a cursory glance. No more will you look at half sentences for screens or programs with long names.
To start using Alt-Tab, just start this application. After that, when you do Alt-tab, you will get SmartTab window that will show you icon, and complete title of each application. To choose a window from that, you can either use the same way as you do in Alt-Tab, or, you can just type the character that is shown corresponding to that window. You can even select the window from your mouse, or just use mousewheel.
The designer and creator of this useful tabbing gadget, allows users to configure colors via a command line parameter as well as highlight the flashing program or screen on the Windows taskbar.
