    alt tab doesn't toggle


    Never had this issue: when i alt tab to something, it doesn't toggle. Or clicking on icon on taskbar doesn't bring that up. While start menu experience host is running. Also when i bring up pop out window from chrome and want alt tab back to main window - main window isn't showing, but maybe is more of a chrome issue, i don't know. Sometimes i also alt tab and mouse cursor disappear, it is like i would be alt tabbed to that window, but i still see old window from which i alt tabbed.

    :)

    Alt-Tab does not toggle in Windows-10

    Hi, After the update was applied to Windows 10 on 5th April 2017, the Alt-Tab does not toggle between different windows. When I do Alt-Tab, it shows in the middle of the screen the the various open windows (the way it always does). But when I release the
    Alt-Tab, the earlier application remains on top. So the toggle is not working. To make things worse, even if I click on the application icon on the bottom task bar (of the application which is already open), it still does not toggle to that application. The
    only way to toggle is - minimize all applications and then click on the icon on bottom task bar. This is becoming big pain!!!! Can anyone help please?

    Alt + Tab in Windows 10 does not Toggle to Previous Screen


    Well, it's never worked that way with me and I'm glad it doesn't. Yes, most of the time when I want to 'toggle' I want to toggle between 2 screens-but I don't want to be stuck with only those screens. If I want to toggle between 2 screens I'll use Alt+Tab for one direction & Alt+BackTab for the other.

    Alt + Tab in Windows 10 does not Toggle to Previous Screen


    Since switching to Windows 10, Alt + Tab does not toggle to previous screen in a number of case, i.e. you have to hit Alt + Tab twice to go to the previous screen or go through the thumbnail screens. It sounds small but being able to toggle to the previous screen by hitting Alt + Tab saves me lots of time. I would appreciate any help someone can give me to return to the previous functionality of earlier Windows systems.
