How can I scroll through open windows in 3D mode using the mouse wheel?

Which Windows feature causes the open windows to be scrolled through one by one when you turn the mouse wheel forward?

It’s not happening in 3D like the feature with the Windows Logo key, it just ‘brings them to the front’ one by one.

I have one friend with Windows Vista and one with Windows 7 that it is happening to.

    It's happening to them simply when they turn the mouse up and NOT in 3D. All that they are doing is turning the mouse and their desktop is flipping through the open windows one by one - sounds like some cycling feature is being invoked - as if they were clicking each item on the taskbar one by one - is their a feature anywhere that has similar behavior, I'm wondering if it is being triggered somehow?

    Press (and hold) Special (Windows Logo) + TAB, then use the mouse wheel. Do not hold tab, only press it. However, hold the special key.

    install window 7 themes on xp, it will give you alt +tab like windows 7 and much more.
    It will make your xp look exactly like windows 7 is installed.

    i guess you are talking about Aero Flip feature .

    enable it like this ..

    Press Ctrl+Windows logo key +Tab.

    now scroll with arrow keys or cursor keys or tab key ...  :)

      this key combo will lock down the Aero Flip . 
      that is , it will remain on hold on screen and you can easily enjoy the 3D flipping with mouse scroll or arrows .

      if you press just windows logo key and tab , 
      you would then have to hold down the windows key to hold the Aero Flip on the screen and enable flipping ..

      hope it helps ...
