Microsoft should bring Instant Viewer to Windows

If you are like me and you have used Microsoft Mouse; when you click on the Middle Button it brings the Instant View Up.

Instant Viewer is basically a canvas that is built on top of Windows Desktop Manager. It shows you the thumbnail of every app that is currently running. It basically is a larger version of live thumbnails that Alt+Tab would show you. But This Software (Instant Viewer) is only available as driver when you Install Microsoft Mouse. It’s such a cool feature that Microsoft should simply include it natively with Windows. But Instant Viewer should provide a shortcut key to actually bring up the same Instant Viewer Functionality up without using the mouse gesture.
