How to Use Flip 3D in Windows 8


In this article we are going to explain how to use Flip 3D in Windows 8. Flip 3D is a very popular feature in Windows 7 and Windows Vista for switching among more then one application using the "Window key + Tab key".

In Windows 8 if you press the Windows Key + Tab key to switch applications in a 3D style then it will only work for Metro applications and it doesn't work for desktop applications.

If you want to use this feature for Desktop applications then you have to use a third party application such as "Switcher".
