more smaller icons in the windows 8 alt+tab / cool switch

recently i’ve moved from win7 to win8. i tend to have dozens of applications open and the default number of programs displayed after pressing alt+tab in win8 is too low.

this registry change brings the win7-alike layout and adds more columns and rows:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"CoolSwitchColumns"="13"
"CoolSwitchRows"="5"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"AltTabSettings"=dword:00000001

you might want to log off and log on for all the changes to apply.
