Vista: Add Flip 3D Window Switcher to the Context (Right-Click) Menu

Posted March 8, 2008 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Vista

Instead of having to use the keyboard combo of the Windows key and the Tab key, why not add the cool Flip 3D window switcher to your context (right-click) menu? Now you can easily access it using only your mouse. Here’s how.


1. Open Notepad.

2. Copy and paste the following into the new text document:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Window Switcher]
@="{3080F90E-D7AD-11D9-BD98-0000947B0257}"

3. Save the document as Flip3D_context_menu.reg.

4. Merge the new file into the registry by right-clicking it, selecting Open With, and finally clicking Registry Editor.

5. Continue through the UAC prompt and confirm that you wish to perform the action.

Now when you right-click your desktop, you will have the Window Switcher option to bring up Flip 3D.
