Please help fixing #37097

I once changed the function that switches to the next window. Instead of 
switching to the next window (in the window list) it was possible to switch 
to the previously opened (more precisely: activated) displayed window. For 
this it was necessary to have a timestamp for each display that noted the 
time of the last activation. This required some nasty hacks because then 
you must be able to track the release of the modifier key like Ctrl to 
allow "jumping over" windows displaying them but not activating. 
Unfortunately this modifier key is user-definable like Alt+PgUp/Alt+PgDown 
or Ctrl+Tab/Ctrl+ShiftTab and I stopped there. Accessing the files using 
Alt+1..9 wouldn't require tracking the modifier key.


PS: How is the modifier key called correctly?
