Looking 4 App to focus on specific window when shortcut key pressed

I've got a bunch of Remote Desktop Connections (RDCs) open and it's a pain to alt-tab between them all. I'd like to be able to just hit a shortcut key combination and have a specific RDC come to focus or front for me to work on. Anyone familiar with something like this? I'm just assuming I'd need an app because I'm not aware of this feature being built into windows xp pro.

Here is what I use.  www.vncscan.com
Free trial and VERY cheap to use.  Give the ability of pushing vnc to systems, enabling remote desktop from your console, rebooting in safe mode with network support remotely!  this is an awesome option.
Give it a try.  I was sold the first day I tried it.

Hope this helps,

This is what I use for hotkeys:

It's very nice, you get to write little text files like batch scripts to run from keystrokes.  

The specific command you need is:

ControlFocus
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sets input focus to a given control on a window.

ControlFocus [, Control, WinTitle, WinText, ExcludeTitle, ExcludeText]


in the Help file under Window Management

A freebie but limited is this one (Shortkeys) http://www.shortkeys.com/lite.htm
More freebies can be found here, a list, but does include some not applicable to you. If direct download dont work, then I suggest u go to developers site (link should be provided) and download from ther

there is a whole bunch of s/w out there, I guess some are just trial/error, find the one you like best
