DECwindows keyboard switch?

» close window

The Question is:

In the CDE, is there a way to switch windows with the keyboard?  I have it set
 so that moving the mouse over a window highlights the window but does not
 bring it to the front.  That is great; however, if I could have the following
 three things from the ke
yboard, I wouldn't have to use that pesky rodent at all:
1. switch active window
2. bring currently active window to front
3. switch workspaces
Any way to do any of those things?

The Answer is :

  The use of [Alt]-[Tab] is one option, and the use of auto-focus
  for the mouse is another.
