    alt+tab stopped working

    I've always used alt+tab to switch between windows. For some reason it doesn't work anymore - nothing happens when i press alt+tab to switch windows.

    It just stopped working for some reason, and I don't know how to fix it. The individual alt and tab keys still work fine.

    Just to be clear Alt+tab used to work for me -- it worked fine ever since I installed win 10, but now it doesn't even though the individual alt and tab keys still work fine.

    How do I fix this? Also, why did it stop working?

    Thanks.

    Alt-Tabbing in & out of games does not always work. It can also crash games in some cases.
