HippoRemote Tip #14 – Auto App Switching (Windows Edition)

without comments

Our last tip talked about automatic app switching on Macs. Today, it’s Windows’ turn.

From our download logs, it looks like many (if not most) Windows folks are using HippoVNC and not some other flavor of VNC. Great! We hope you are enjoying the convenience of auto app switching!

For those Windows users using the hotkey app launching approach (or no app launching at all!), I highly recommend giving HippoVNC a try. With the hotkey launcher, switching to an app that’s already running will open a new window. This can be a bit annoying.

HippoVNC does the right thing. When you select a profile, it will launch that program if it’s not running, or switch you to an existing window if the program is running. Super convenient for switching back and forth between iTunes and Firefox, for example.
