Alt   Tab Tuner for Windows 7

With Windows Vista, Microsoft introduced the Flip 3D feature, a feature that displays open windows in a stack, and lets you switch between apps. Even though the feature is present in Windows 7 as well and can be accessed by pressing Windows + Tab keys, majority of Windows users prefer to use the good old Alt + Tab hotkey.

Long time Windows users would know that Microsoft has also enhanced the Alt + Tab dialog by adding Aero borders and thumbnail preview features. While the default look of Alt + Tab is pretty neat and works flawlessly, you might want to enable classic style Alt + Tab dialog and change the margins and thumbnails spacing.
