Create Taskbar icon to launch Flip3D


Recommended Posts

Do you like the Flip 3D feature that was introduced in Windows Vista, which lets you slip through the stack of your open windows? It's still there in Windows 7; just press CTRL+Windows logo key+TAB. (Note that you have to have Aero enabled to use Flip 3D).


You can also create a taskbar icon to open Flip 3D by clicking, if you don't already have one. Here's how:

  • Right- click an empty spot on the desktop and select New | Shortcut
  • In the "location of the item" box, type RunDll32 DwmApi #105
  • In the "Name" field, type Flip 3D
  • Click Finish
  • Right- click on the new shortcut and select Properties
  • Click the Shortcut tab, then click the Change Icon button
  • In the "Look for icons in this file" field, type or browse to c:windowsexplorer.exe
  • Select the Flip 3D icon (looks like a stack of windows) and click OK
  • Drag the new shortcut onto the taskbar and pin it there.

Extra info: easily move between the 3D windows with the wheel of the mouse


Thanks to,
