I asked this question: Switching between non-suspended apps (with alt-tab?) which got closed as duplicate.

The orignal question though only details how to switch applications, not now to switch between a list that doesn't include suspended ones.

I'm happy for the answer to my question to be "It's not possible", but I don't feel the question should be closed.

Your question is a little confusing and doesn't state clearly what exactly you want, like you have done so here. For future cases I suggest you re-write the post before prompting to reopen. In this case however there is only a set way to switch between apps no matter their state thus making the dupe a definitive answer. Any answers to your post are going to be the same.

  • Sorry, I don't know how to make the orignal question more clear. Like I say, I'm happy for the answer to be "It's not possible". I think an explicit answer to my question is better than one implied by my question being closed as a duplicate. Commented Oct 23, 2012 at 12:38
  • @GeorgeDuckett you're question being closed as a duplicate implicitly implies that the answer is the same. You use the same way to switch between apps in Windows 8 no matter the actual 'state' they're in unless they're closed then they're not available through fast switching methods. Answering this with "No" provides no more detail than that. Commented Oct 23, 2012 at 12:57
  • Ok, I can see where you (and commenters on the orignal question) are coming from. Personally I still think an answer (maybe with a link to the answer on the other question) would be more useful, particularly to people not familiar to SU or the SE network. Commented Oct 23, 2012 at 12:59

    @GeorgeDuckett You question links to the duplicate question, and therefore the answers. Commented Oct 23, 2012 at 13:01
