TopDesk Application Switcher

One of the things that I am into (you know if you have read the blog for awhile) is nice desktop eye candy (on my PC damn it). I came across a link today to Otaku Software’s TopDesk, which can replace the generic Windows alt-tab with something much better. Any of you that are familiar with Windows Vista Flip3D will find this screenshot very familiar:


No, I’m not currently running Windows Vista. I went back to XP a couple of weeks ago. This is TopDesk. I have not had much time to play around with it’s other features or let it run for awhile to see what kind of resources it takes up, but I have it running right now in conjunction with Windowblinds, DesktopX, IconX and a few other widgets and programs, so I will update this post later to let you know what kind of resources it uses.

From the TopDesk web site:

Find windows, fast. TopDesk is a quick and easy way to switch between applications. With a single key press, you can instantly view thumbnails of all open windows, display thumbnails of windows belonging to the current application, or hide all windows to quickly access the desktop.


  • Displays thumbnails of all applications, including minimized applications, in 2D and 3D views.
  • Shows thumbnails of all windows belonging to the current application.
  • Hides all windows for quick access the desktop.
  • While tiled, can display the title of the currently selected window or the titles of all tiled windows.
  • Windows can be closed and minimized/restored while tiled.
  • Completely configurable: Hot keys, mouse hotspots, floating buttons, window titles, and performance settings can all be changed.
  • Supports multiple monitors.

So far I like it and will continue to play with it.

  • Is Huckaby one stupid woman or what’s wrong with her? OK, she is this mild mannered Sunday school teacher that picks up a little girl that just happens to be a neighbor and friend of her daughter. The next thing we know we got one dead girl and her missing piece of luggage. She tells a news reported about this missing or stolen luggage. The cops are all over her like a hot shower. The missing girl shows up dead in a black piece of luggage. Strange things happens – some one stole her luggage but did not take anything else from her property not even a fork or TV. They did not rape or beat her up. She says they took the luggage from her drive way, now that’s an odd place for that unless one is doing a garge sale or cleaning.
    Joe Bob, the only way this nut case is not going to the death house is to start looking like a nut, acting like a nut and convince the jury/court that she is in fact a nut that was abused.

  • Death Penalty…I wasn’t surprised at all it was a woman perp…they seem to be growing in numbers, and while not all are rapists, they don’t mind procuring for the male pedo asswipe. And I don’t give a damn hat *excuse* she has ! Enough with excuses and coddling /protecting pedophiles !

  • She should definitely recieve the DEATH PENALTY. I don’t know how anybody, especially a mother, could hurt a child. She is a sick person. This story just keeps getting worse and worse.
