I don't recall whether this worked in Mathematica 7, but it does in 
Mathematica 8, at least under Windows:  Ctrl + F6 cycles among open 
notebook windows, including open Documentation Center windows.

And you don't have to experiment to find this out. In the Documentation 
Center, search, e.g., for "shortcut key". One of the search results will 
be "Keyboard Shortcut Listing". And you'll find that shortcut, and lots 
of others, there, too.

Of course fingers always hovering above a keyboard can stand some 
relief, and reaching for a mouse and just clicking in some other window 
isn't that hard or time-consuming!
