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

I created an account to answer to an 8 years old fourm post lmao.

Ok i found an answer that it's not using auto hot key and it's this

" MiddleMouseUpAction=["shell:::{3080F90E-D7AD-11D9-BD98-0000947B0257}"] "

Took me a bit of research, hope it helps someone in this day an age.

Good decision. It always helps if the solution results in reaching the desired objective, regardless of when the previous reply was posted. :thumbup:
