  1. cant get ALT+TAB to show windows open on current desktop


    Hi,

    I've been trying this for a while, but I can't seem to get Alt-tab to show the windows on the current desktop. I've tried the tutorial here: ALT+TAB - Show Windows Open on Desktops in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums.

    Initially it was set to show only on the desktop I'm using, but that wasn't working, so I changed it to all desktop, restarted, still the same alt tab behaviour. I then changed it to only on the desktop i'm using, restarted and it still hasn't changed.

    I've even tried running the bat files and restarting after running the bat files but still nothing.

    Anyone else experienced this problem? Or have any ideas to solve it?

    :)

    Show desktop windows 10

    How do I minimize a full screen game to show my desktop? In previous versions of windows you could alt+tab or win+D or even just hit the windows key. Now the windows key does nothing, win+d does nothing and alt+tab switches between open windows. If you
    only have 1 program open that is fullscreen, alt+tab will be of no help. I am currently holding alt+tab then clicking on chrome just to open a new program so i can minimize the game.

  3. desktop is not listed in Ctrl+Tab toggle

    Hello,

    In windows 10 there is a new feature in which you can create multiple desktops.

    Use Windows + Tab to get the desktop list.

    You may select the desktop and configure according to your needs.

    Alt+Tab can be used for switching between the open applications.

    Windows +D will minimize all the current tab and you should be able to see the desktop.

    Regards,

    Nikhil
