Many Window's users know that holding down the ALT key and then pressing the TAB key at the same time will "cycle" through all currently open programs. What many don't realize is that using the CTRL key with the TAB key will often cycle through open windows *within* the currently active program.

Not all applications support this (which explains why not everyone knows this) but try it in your favorite ones to see if they will let you do this.

If the value isn't immediately apparent, just think about trying to "cut and paste" from six separate e-mails, or comparing several open spreadsheets.
