Is there a way to toggle between the same application? (browser) in Windows 7?

Like when I'm in Internet Explorer, how can I toggle between only IE windows, excluding other windows.

I tried and it doesn't work.
CTRL+Tab will cycle between tabs, but you'll still need to use ALT+Tab between windows like always.

I don't know of a way to just show windows of a certain application. That would then prevent you from cycling between applications, so I'm not for this idea.

It is precisely to avoid cycling between other apps that I need this. I have a lot of apps open and it can be a hassle to locate another window of the same app.

Aero Peek?

Put the cursor on the icon of the application on the task bar and a menu will appear showing all the windows an application has open. When you hover over each one, a preview will be shown.

Aero Peek is less efficient though. You have to locate, aim and click on the small icon on the bottom which is a hassle.

If you are currently using multiple tabs within one IE window:
Just open a new IE window (not another tab). Then you can toggle between the two desired web sites using Alt+Tab.

I do that all the time on my work PC with Chrome. In case someone's walking by and I want to pretend I'm working. :)
