The humble incremental-search task switcher for Windows

This project is maintained by Regin Larsen

What is Switcheroo?

Switcheroo is for anyone who spends more time using a keyboard than a mouse. Instead of alt-tabbing through a (long) list of open windows, Switcheroo allows you to quickly switch to any window by typing in just a few characters of its title. It's inspired by Emacs's IDO mode buffer switching and JetBrains' ReSharper.

How to use it?

The default key binding for Switcheroo is Alt + Space. Pressing this key combination will bring up the Switcheroo window, which lists the titles of every open window. Typing filters the list. Press Enter to switch to the selected window. Press Ctrl + Enter to close the selected window.

The key binding can be changed by right-clicking the notification icon in the Windows notification area and choosing "Options".

Who makes it?
