Kelli Lewis wonders <<when you press Alt+tab, a window pops up that allows
you to tab to other open applications on the system. What would/do you all
call it?>>

I generally seen it called the "application switcher", but I don't have the
MS manual of [sic] style to see if that's official, or just common usage.
Depending on the context, though, your readers may have no idea what you're
talking about, and you may have to either define this name or write your way
around the need to use it.
