The table of open windows is usually what I'm interested in. Is there

a way to change this so it displays to NVDA in a list or however it
did in Windows 7 and before?

Actually, you can't really find out how many programs are running as many of
them do not show windows. What task switching window (Alt+Tab) will show is
a table of open windows. At least on recent Windows 10 releases, to find out
how many windows are showing, it is better to open Task View (Windows+Tab)

Most of the time it doesn't, but there are certainly times when I'd like to
know how many programs are running.

Why does it matter? If you alt tab through running programs, you'll
the one you want. I' not saying it doesn't matter, but I don't
understand where it would.

I had to use Narrator to get me out of a tight spot yesterday, and
I've noticed this in previous experiences as well. Narrator, and every
other screen reader on Windows 7, gave the alt+tab list as a number
out of total programs, for example Windows Media Player 2 of 3. Now on
10, Narrator is the only screen reader that does this. Everything else
I've used with Windows 10 says "Windows Media Player row 1 column 2."
To me this is not useful at all, because I have no idea how many rows
there are, or how many columns are in a row. Is there a way to change
the way NVDA announces this?
