Alt-¿ Tab is the common name for a keyboard shortcut on Microsoft Windows Windows 3.0 onwards used for switching between top-level windows without using the mouse; hence it was named Task Switcher (Flip in Windows Vista/7). Casual users may press Alt-¿ Tab to alternate between the two most recent tasks, but used to its full potential, Alt-¿ Tab can switch to any running program. The list of tasks is kept in an order with the most recently used tasks at the front. Tab does not need to be pressed as many times to move the task selection cursor from the front of the list to a nearer task—the more recently used, the easier to get back.
