What fingers for Alt+Tab and Ctrl+Tab?

I like easy computer interaction; part of the reason why  my work is done using more of the keyboard and less of the mouse.

Until lately I have been executing Atl+Tab using my thumb (on Alt) and index finger (on Tab). This demands a larger movement of my left palm from it's default position (index finger on F key). Lately I figured it out that using the thumb (on Alt) and pinky finger (on tab) will not demand so much  movement of my palm on the keyboard.

On the other hand I do not see any better key-finger pairing for Ctrl+Tab. I have considered pinky (on ctrl) and ring/middle finger (on tab); right pinky (on right Ctrl) and left pinky (on tab) as well; but it doesn't seem to quite fit in the easiness of typing. Perhaps it needs time.

What fingers do you use to execute Alt+Tab and Ctrl+Tab?

Alt+Tab: left thumb and ring finger.

Ctrl+Tab: left ring finger (ctrl) and middle finger (tab) (capslock remapped to ctrl).

Won't help you a) without my hands b) without a keyboard sized similar to mine c) without my remappings.

Always wondered why capslock was remapped to ctrl by most users and even had a discussion about it on BL forum years back. Now I know why! big_smile

I'll try the Ctrl+Tab out with Capslock+Tab. My pinky finger is pretty agile and strong, so I would go with my pinky finger and ring finger.  big_smile
