  3. Winkey+Tab. If you have a scroll wheel you can use it to flip/scroll
    through the progs.

    Hmmm.

    I have tried every combination and cannot get Flip 3d to work. Any ideas?

    I rather doubt you can. Aero Glass and the 3d flip feature require a WDDM
    video card with at least 256MB of RAM.

    Your Sony does not qualify.

    Me too.
    You only need 128 ram although more is always better, but not necessary in
    this case.

  14. Not true. 256 is not required. 3D rendering and DirectX 9 are more
    important that any memory requirement anyway. Everyone seems to think that
    enough video memory is sufficient to run Glass, but it is the WDDM
    compliance that you refer to that is critical.

    Hadn't thought of that. Looks cool, but just using the normal Alt-TAB is
    plenty good enough for me.

    Yay. A windows update came out today and all of a sudden, Flip 3D works. Whether or not the two are related...I'll have to figure that out.

    Thanks for all the responses.
    Do you have Aero Glass?

    Make up a desktop short cut
    then paste this in there
    C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe DwmApi #105
    save the new desktop icon as Flip 3D you have to be in Aero Glass to have
    this work also

    then dubble click in your new shortcut icon flip 3D is kewl but worthless
    hehehe
