I have found a way to enable quick app switching (or what ever it is called) in the Mango emulator. It seems to be a little bit buggy but it works. Here is a screenshot:

Here is the how to:
1. Press [Windows]+[R]. A "Run" dialog should appear.
2. Now type in "notepad %programfiles%\Microsoft XDE\1.0\WM7_Skin.xml"
3. Find
Code:
		<button
			
			toolTip="Back"
			onClick="0x3B"
			mappingColor="0xF7941D"
		/>
and replace onClick="0x3B" with onPressAndHold="0x3B" so it would look like this:
Code:
		<button
			
			toolTip="Back"
			onPressAndHold="0x3B"
			mappingColor="0xF7941D"
		/>
4. Now start your emulator and press and hold the back button

maybe you got windows 64 bit
then replace %programfiles% with %programfiles(x86)%

so the path then should be C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft XDE\1.0\WM7_skin.xml
