Windows X (10) Task View question

Post by Nebbishatudub »

While it's been a while since my last post, yesterday's public release of Windows X seemed like the perfect reason to start up again.

I currently have a small task manager switcher that I use with Rainmeter to swap between different programs (my taskbar is hidden). However, in Windows 10 there is a new way to switch between programs, called "Task View." This is an updated feature from the Flow View (Win⊞+Tab) and traditional Alt+Tabbing.

Anyways, I was wondering if somebody had found out a shortcut to this so that it can be accessed within Rainmeter? I'm guessing that it'll be something that we have to go through a system file for (like opening the network flyout "LeftMouseUpAction=[rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\van.dll,RunVAN]"), I'm just not sure which one.

Any help would be much appreciated!

You can use AutoHotKey to send Win+Tab to Windows and execute it with a Rainmeter bang.

For anyone still looking for this, it's Ctrl + Win + Left/Right Arrow
