  1. Classic alt+tab


    I want to have the classic alt+tab with icons instead of thumbnails. Various websites say you can get this by adding a AltTabSettings key to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer but this didn't work for me.

    Is there an alternative way?

  2. Restore Classic ALT+TAB A-B B-A switching with mouse, not random


    The very three critical combinations to understand before even participating in this thread:


    1. Windows 10 with classic ALT+Tab registry key restoration (all over the web, look it up).
    2. Use any program that customizes the key bindings to the fourth and fifth mouse buttons (the thumb buttons); I have been using X-Mouse Button Control.
    3. Set the forward-thumb button to ALT+Tab (if using X-Mouse Button Control set to "Simulated Keys (pressed)" and paste {ALT}{TAB}.

    This is not about using the physical keyboard to ALT+Tab, this thread is about assigning the Classic Alt+Tab function to a mouse and having it switch between the two active windows only instead of randomly wandering around different unrelated windows.

    Here is list of open Windows for both Windows 7 and 10:

    Window A [code/work browser]
    Window B [IDE/code editor]
    Window C [notepad]
    Window ♣ [funny cat pictures]
    Window Beta [separate browser for developer chat]
    Window Waldo [browser used to find an answer drowning in responses by people who just don't get it]

    Typically when I work I switch between my code editor and my test browser however this is just an example as I use the Classic non-borked Alt+Tab all the time between any two windows and when I'm done with a pair I will manually switch to another pair typically.

    To trigger the correct behavior press and hold ALT, press Tab once and then let go of both keys.

    Windows 7 Classic Alt+Tab (correct mouse-ALT+Tab behavior):

    Window A
    Code:
     Window B [browser / reload / worked? No? Back to code!]
     Window A [code]
     Window B [browser / reload / worked? No? Back to code!]
     Window A [code]
     Window B [browser / reload / worked? No? Back to code!]
     Window A [code]
     Window B [browser / reload / worked? No? Back to code!]
     
     Windows 10 Classic Alt+Tab restored via registry (incorrect mouse-ALT+Tab behavior):
     
     Window A [code]
     Window X [WTH?!]
     Window ♣ [huge vein on forehead appears]
     Window Beta [violence likely]
     Window Waldo [divided by zero]
     
     Even when you get rid of the crappy GUI garbage they dumped on users in Windows 10 the behavior of Alt+Tabbing once (pressing Tab [i]once[/i] and letting go of the Alt key) is now absolute and utter chaos. I'm a GUI designer (UI/UX etc) and the goal is to always achieve maximum results with minimum input.
     
     No:
     
     [list][*]I'm not going to use ALT+Esc
    [*]I'm not going to use Windows+Tab
    [*]I'm not going to add twenty seconds staring at window explosions in place of 20ms action.
    [*]I'm not going to post on Microsoft Answers because the last thing you ever get there is a frigin answer.
    [*]My work won't allow me to dump Windows 10 like the released-two-years-too-early-mess it is and just go back to Windows 7.
    [/list]
     
     Please, fellow beings of competence, hear my plea! I've probably had [i]hours[/i] of my time wasted by [i]just[/i] this Windows 10 "feature" alone.

  3. alt + tab not working

    Just found a really cool way to make alt+tab INSTANT!!!

    In the launch options write the following: -windowed -noborder


    Classic alt+tab Capture122.jpg


    This play exactly the same as fullscreen but now you dont have to wait 30 f*@!ing seconds to alt+tab back in!

    Also you don't get the little purple/black checkered effect (only in Source games) from alt+tabbing in fullscreen.
