I habitually use Keyboard shortcuts to get around, Ctrl+0 to go to the Command Window, Shift+Ctrl+0 to the editor etc., but as soon as a plot is thrown up they don't respond. What's more is that I often generate lots of figures and it is hard to get around by Alt-Tab. So I added these functions:
Close all windows (Ctrl+Shift+W)
Close all windows Except this one (Ctrl+Shift+E)
and (un)Dock all (Ctrl+Shift+A).
Reflects changes to shortcuts introduced by MATLAB R2012b.
It is most useful if set-up by default (see Help) using
set(0, 'DefaultFigureKeyPressFcn', @figDefaultKeyPress)
