I just discovered a ‘feature’ on my computer. When I press a button on my Microsoft Mouse which (Labeled ‘Instant Viewer’ in control panel), I get the following-

This is basically a window switching utility. Trouble is, I NEVER INSTALLED ANY SUCH UTILITY! I can’t complain – I actually like this. However, I would still like to figure out how I got to benefit this little feature. And just so we are clear, I don’t believe in a guardian angel.

Here is a list of software that I recently installed-

  1. Safari
  2. FolderShare
  3. Digsby
  4. Google Desktop



Please leave a comment with your guess!

    what is that? is it like the mac’s expose effect?

  3. I’m not familiar with mac’s expose but this particular utility simply shows me a thumbnail of all active windows and lets me click on them to bring one forward

    Yep, that’s exactly what expose does on a mac. it’s a very neat feature, actually many third party programs actually sell that try to emulate the effect with windows.
