Screen Edge Task Switcher

Provides a more efficient way of switching tasks in Windows using the mouse.

To switch between two tasks quickly using the keyboard, a user can simply press Alt-Tab to toggle between the two windows.

Using the mouse the user must click on the taskbar button of the window to toggle to. The user must remember which window is currently active and locate the taskbar button of the window to toggle to. This is very slow compared to using Alt-Tab on the keyboard.

This application fixes this by making one side of the screen act like Alt-Tab when it is clicked.
