TC does create a window without taskbar icon to which you can Alt+Tab while TC is in the tray. Unfortunately I had to introduce this "press Enter after alt+tab" on Windows NT based operating systems ...
Currently in Windows Task Switcher, called by Alt+Tab, all such windows of minimized Total Commander instances have the same title:

Totalcmd (Press ENTER after Alt+Tab)

I suggest to add to such titles TC instance numbers to which that windows belong, so the titles will look like:

[<instance number>] Totalcmd (Press ENTER after Alt+Tab)


It will save a lot of time when switching to some particular Total Commander instance which is minimized to notification area.

This suggestion is an alternative/addition to related one about indication of TC instance number using taskbar and notification area icons.

Thanks for adding this to TC 9.50 beta 8, and it seems to work as expected - now instance number of minimized to tray TC is shown both in Task Switcher and Task Manager. This little addition is great and especially helpful for using Total Commander from keyboard.
