    Alt + Tab when a program is busy


    There's a game I play called Kerbal Space Program and it often takes a long time at loading screens. I'd like to Alt + Tab out of the game during loading but the problem is that the Alt + Tab take a long time to be registered by which time the loading is almost, if not completely, finished anyway. Is there anything I can do to make Windows listen to my Alt + Tab presses?

    :)

  2. ALT+TAB in Windows 10 when switching between 2 files of same program

    Instead of pressing Alt+Tab twice, try holding Alt and press tab (but keep holding Alt). What is highlighted? Is it highlighting something else than what you expect?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting In Microsoft Community.

    Please answer these questions to assist you better.

    • Have you installed all pending updates?
    • Did you make any changes to your computer prior to this issue?
    Once you are on the desktop, install any pending updates on the pc to check if that helps. Updates are additions to software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your computer works, or enhance your computing experience.

    I suggest you to boot the computer in Safe mode and check the status of the issue.

    Method 1: Try booting the system in Safe Mode and check the status of the issue.

    Safe mode starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and services. Refer the link below for steps to boot in Safe Mode.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/...ther-startup-settings-in-windows-10#v1h=tab01

    In case the issue doesn’t occur in Safe Mode try performing a Clean boot to
    check if any third party application is causing the issue, as clean boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.

    Method 2: Perform a Clean boot on the system

    How to troubleshoot problem by performing clean boot in Windows:

    Note: Refer
