I was on my computer earlier and somehow I acciedentally did something. There were all of my widows on the screen for me to pick from. It was similar to alt-tab but not quite the same. Also it reminded me of the powertoy for multi desktop. I have searched for about an hour trying to figure out what that was, any ideas?

Again it was if all of my windows were put into one showing them all tiled and zoomed out. then I could pick the one I wanted to go to.

Any ideas how to access this again?

thanks!

Anyone have any ideas? I know I was not imagining this, it really happened!

There is some hidden way to pull up all the windows on your screen into one that looks as if they were all zoomed way out and then youc an pick on the one you want!

thanks!
