Subject description: cycling between windows on the desk-top
 

G'day all:

I often switch between windows on my desk-top, eg Geany and the Terminal (etc).

This is done simply: <alt> + <tab>.

In Puppy these keys appear to switch windows in a uni-directional circular 'ring'.
I cannot find a way to swap back-wards and forwards, backwards and forwards, between two applications without traversing the whole ring.

In Windows I can return to an earlier window very easily:
From window "A" <alt> + <tab> -> window 'B'. (forward)
THEN (fr, window "B") <SHIFT> + <alt> + <tab> -> window 'A'. (backward)

Is there a comparable sequence available in 'da Puppy'?
If 'no' could it be added in a future version?
I need this!

Woof! Leslie

Yes.

But why don't you ask in the Users forum?

I don't have any Puppy on this computer, however if same method as in DebianDogs then you can:

alt + tab to go one way (down) through the cycle

and

alt + shift then tab to go the other way (up) through the cycle of opened apps.
