    Is (CTRL TAB) used for WIN desktop work?

    Forgive me, but I don't work with WIN-whatever.. I need to make a
    decision about keyboard control strokes that I can use within my
    own applications and one of them I really could use is the

    <CTRL TAB> key combination, as well as <SHIFT TAB> too.

    Right or wrong I've used <SHIFT TAB> for a reverse screen move
    keystroke combo for years. I'd like to use <CTRL TAB> for the
    inverse of that as a forward screen move laterally to the next
    field across the screen as the inverse of the other. For years
    I've used <SHIFT TAB> to pop laterally across the screen to
    the closest field entry point left of where the cursor currently
    is in our menuing .. I used another combo stroke for the
    reverse of that, but it suddenly dawns on me that the toggle
    with the SHIFT and CTRL keys is far more intuitive to a user,
    if there isn't a conflict in that.

    However, that wouldn't be such a good idea if the WIN desktop
    uses it for something else.

    In OS/2 the <ALT TAB> is used for direct desktop manipulation.
    It toggles between the last two sessions back and forth, unless
    you hold the <ALT> key down and tap the tab key while doing so.
    If you do that in OS/2 you ratchet between a header bar that
    indicates each of the sessions on the desktop in order. You
    can roll around the entire session roster that way in OS/2.

    Would someone confirm for me if <SHIFT TAB> and <CTRL TAB> are
    taken for WIN workings?

    Thank you..
