Small Business Tech Tip: Toggle Through Windows without a Mouse

Yes, your mouse works just fine, but you can also toggle through open application windows via the keyboard. Using the Alt+Tab key combination, you can toggle through application windows without your hands leaving the keyboard.  I like the fact that applications are in order from most recently used. 

You can read more about this key combination’s functionality in the Wikipedia entry about Alt+Tab

    I have a inspiron 1501 laptop and would like a tour of my keyboard. the number keys are above other letters or symbols and I am used to a separate number pad. I  don't seem to have the knack to toggle between the numbers lock keyand caps lock key in order to use my number pad. Do you have a video using these keys?
