Change Log

1.103, August 2022:

  • If current window matches the chosen shortcut, then a search is made for other matching window to activate.
    This can be used to switch between two windows matching the same shortcut, e.g. two Word windows with different documents.
  • Added support for ComputerNameRegExp in shortcuts.cfg.
    In case a shortcuts configuration file is shared among multiple PCs, this can be used to limit the PCs, that a given shortcut applies to.
    See shortcuts.cfg for an example.
  • Minor bugfixes and improvements.

1.102, May 2022:
Added support for configuration of key for invoking TorkilsTaskSwitcher.
Default remains Win-Tab, but this can now be changed by right-clicking TorkilsTaskSwitcher icon in the task bar, and clicking "Options ...".

1.101, April 2022:
Minor bugfix for shortcuts using Command with %PROGRAMFILES% and argument for executable.

1.100, April 2022:

  • GUI performance improvements. E.g. GUI loads faster when pressing Win-Tab.
  • Added configuration option for changing GUI color. See "Options ..." in tray menu.
  • If %PROGRAMFILES% is used to specify Command in shortcuts.cfg, then the specified file is automatically searched for in both "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)".
  • If TorkilsTaskSwitcher is used to leave a window (to switch to a different window), then the mouse position within the window is recorded and mouse is restored to the recorded position next time TorkilsTaskSwitcher reactivates the window (provided that window position or size has not changed).
  • Minor error corrections and improvements.

1.041, December 2013:
Removed taskbar button.
Maximum width of "Windows" GUI reduced.

1.040, October 2013:
Corrected bug in 1.039, which is triggered when TorkilsTaskSwitcher discovers availability of newer version.
This normally causes an "Update to xyz" link in upper right corner, but due to this bug the following error occurs instead: "Error: Invalid option. Specifically: s5 ...".
When this occurs you need to manually upgrade to 1.040, or later.
Since 1.039 was only available for download for <24 hours, few should be affected by this bug.

1.039, October 2013:
Default shortcuts updated to Windows 7.
Updated to new compiler version.

1.037, September 2012:
Help related improvements.

1.036, September 2012:
Default "shortcuts.cfg" now embedded in torkilstaskswitcher.exe, thereby avoiding problems with failing download of "shortcuts.cfg" due to security/firewall settings.

1.035, September 2012:
Improved error handling when download of default "shortcuts.cfg" fails.

1.034, September 2012:
Bugfix: Windows list failed if any process name contained '+'.
Bugfix: If '+' was used as shortcut key, then it was incorrectly shown as "Shift-" in GUI.

1.032, March 2012:
Bugfix: Windows list failed if any process name contained '-'.

Added configuration of "Run at Startup" to tray icon menu (right-click).

Trailing spaces in "Key=" in shortcuts.cfg now accepted.

Added support for CommandDir in shortcuts file (see documentation here).
Various minor corrections & enhancements.
