Picture of all open windows to scroll through

Did you know how easy it is to preview ALL of the windows you have open right now?

Simply hold down Control key (left of spacebar) and each time you press the Tab key the focus will change to the next window in order.

When you reach the one you want, release your fingers and it will appear !

Tip:- To prevent the Windows from disappearing, press Shift as well. You can now use Tab on its own to scroll through at your leisure to find one you want !

After typing in ‘Cognito’ (just an example) and pressing enter, you will see this – click on ‘Switch to tab’
