Say you have about four different programs running on your PC at the same time. You have your e-mail up and running, a Web browser window open, a Word document ready for review and your music player playing your favorite song. With all of that going on, have you ever wondered if there was a quick way to view all of those programs and then pull up the one you want right then and there?

Well, you’re in luck. All you have to do is press Alt + Tab and it will bring up all of the programs you have open.

Just continue to press the Tab key to scroll your way across the programs, highlight the one you want and then release the Alt key to bring up the one you chose. Want to change programs again? Just repeat the process. It’s so simple and it also helps you to keep track of everything you have running.
