Is there any way of cycling through the list of applications backwards, using the cool switch (alt+tab) feature in Windows?

It's really annoying when the program i want to access is behind the program that has the focus on the alt+tab list and i have to scroll through the whole lot.

I know this is incredibly old, but I'm writing a short post on the history of cool switch when I found this -- and wanted to offer this tip.

Try Alt-Escape. It means "send active window to the back of the stack". It's beautiful and I use it constantly.
