Window selection navigation

  Under review

It would be great if the "window selection screen" navigation could be a bit enhanced. I mean the selection that is by default under ctrl + alt + Down, or alt + F3. I have it personally bound to alt + X. I like that I can open and close it just with my left hand, like alt + tab. But unlike alt + tab, the windows can be navigated only with arrow keys.

My idea: Make it possible to also move in the window selection with tab and shift + tab. Or even A, S, W, D, or anything to make this feature a bit more versatile. I use it allot, it's great :)

PS: it could be also considered to change the movement of the selected screen when hitting the wall. I find it right now a bit unintuitive. I would suggest to emerge on the other side of the same row/collumn when passing a wall (the screen edge), rather than jumping to a new one.
