[Windows] Good window management tool: the Dock in VisualTooltip

I'm trying out a great window management tool: the Dock in VisualTooltip. It displays thumbnails for all open windows in a dock at the bottom of the screen.

I like this better than Expose and Alt-Tab because the thumbnails are always visible - you don't need to switch to a different mode to see them.



  • A nice touch is that it displays a progress bar above progress dialogs:
