ALT-TAB through 3 app windows with same name

Asked by datavampire on 2019-09-26

First: RAIMAN..a hearty THANK YOU for developing this and continuing to support it. Sikuli's an *incredibly* useful tool. Bravo!

I'd like to extend a Sikuli program so that it alt-tabs through THREE different app windows, all of which have the same name. I've got ALT-TAB working to make the magic happen with two windows, but am 1) wondering if progress has been made re: making ALT-TAB more robust and/or 2) whether anyone has ideas re: how to make alt-tabbing through 3 windows (with the same name, yes - same app) possible.

The order in which each window gets hit isn't important. What is: cycling through all 3 windows. Put more plainly, it's cool if alt-tabbing results in visiting Window1 ==> Window2 ==> Window3 ==> Window2 ==> Window1 ==> [...]

Simpler question might be: is there away to make the key combination ALT-TAB-TAB happen?

if I understand right, it is Windows.

What about the option to hover the app icon in the taskbar and then select the next window in the popup?

RaiMan himself. Holy cow. Yes, you were correct - Windows 10.

THANKS very much for the quick response. Hovering the app icon worked out great. Sleeping on it, I realized too that for my use case - I could also de-maximize the windows, cascade or otherwise arrange them, then click on the different locations corresponding to the app window I wanted to focus on. Hovering's of course cleaner, and I'll be sticking with it. Thanks again!
