Taskbar buttons switch to Last Active Window in Windows 7
In the Windows 7 taskbar, if you have lots of windows for the same application open, things may get confusing when you are trying to find the window you want.
If you control-click on the application in question, the last window will show up. If you keep clicking, it will cycle through open windows.
To change it so that a normal click (instead of a control-click) goes to the last active Windows, you may hack the registry to do so:
- open regedit.exe
- Find the registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
- Create a new 32-bit DWORD value on the right hand side, give it the name LastActiveClick, and set the value to 1
- close regedit, then log off and log back on.
