    Thank you for your answer.

    I just followed your instructions (my keyboard was updated), but I still can't switch to my desktop with ALT + TAB.

    Here is what I get:

    But I'd like to have one more option: getting to the desktop, like I was used to, and pleased of, on W8:

    Merci d'avance,

    Hi Xavier,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are experiencing. I will definitely assist you.

    To understand the issue better, I would like to know is the Tab key is working?

    This issue may occur due to the key board driver is out of dated. Try the below steps and check.

    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Device Manager

    • Locate for the keyboard and expand it.

    • Now right click on the keyboard and click on update.
    Hope this helps. If you need further assistance with Windows, let us know and will be glad to help.

    Alt+Tab works but on mine only until I release the Alt key. There is a Peek/Show Desktop at the far right end of the Taskbar [beyond the clock] similar to Win7 where holding the mouse over it shows the Desktop but clicking on it minimizes everything and clicking again restores it.

    Or you can press WIN+D together.

    I know I always forget about that. Just wondering if it was possible, It was in windows 8 and 8.1.

    Yes I'm aware of this. Don't think it's possible.

    There are ways to make shortcuts to show desktop, but there is already win+D so nothing new is achieved by this.
