Ctrl + Tab key in VSTS

Another cool feature of VSTS that most of the developers do not use is the Ctrl + Tab key. When you have lot of windows open within VSTS IDE you can switch to another by clicking on the tab, selecting the active files icon on the right of the tab bar or selecting the window from the Window menu.

Another option is to use the Ctrl + Tab Key which opens up a small dialog as shown the next figure, similar to Alt + Tab Window in Windows. Then you can use the Tab key or Up & Down key to navigate to other windows while keeping the Ctrl key down.

I was just wondering if we’ll have Ctrl 3D (similar to Flip 3D in Vista) where all the open windows will be shown in 3D in future versions of VSTS. May be that’ll be too much. Also live preview of windows (similar to what happens when you hover the mouse pointer over a minimized window icon on Windows Taskbar) will be great!
