    It is very troublesome to switch between the windows of opened apps

    Is there a convenient way?

    How troublesome? Press a button, switch? Depends on what device you have maybe?

    Long-press the 'Home' button and the last few apps used appears. Tap on the one you want. Simple.

    That's for Samsung. A more recent HTC device like the One X and One S would have a dedicated multitask key.

    That's how it works on my HTC Amaze w/ICS and every other Android device I've had.

    See multi-task button on lower right corner of phone. Probably the US versions are different?

    I use Nova Launcher, mimics vanilla ICS but does not have the multi-task button on phones with capacitive buttons. Long-press home for recent apps.

    Whatever launcher you use, that key won't change, Its a capacitive key sitting on the hardware, just like the back and home keys. So its really your phone. :)

    I have Home, Menu, Back & Search capacitive buttons. No Multi-task.

    A probably some US version weirdness. :) Samsung phones there also have those four buttons instead of the usual 3 buttom layout internationally.
