Ever seen someone's screen come up this this crazy thang?
Wow-right? Well it's super easy, and actually very useful. By pressing Alt + Tab you can scan through open windows (documents, web browser pages, emails etc) until you find what you'd like. To move in the other direction, use Shift +Alt+Tab .
