  1. Sometimes Alt+Tab works strangely


    If press Alt+Tab in Windows, the currently running programs are listed horizontally, right?

    So if you take your finger off of it, the last app you chose should be selected right away... But strangely, a white focus box stops AFTER a round of rotation.

    I thought it was a problem with my keyboard, so I changed it but the symptom is same.Is this Windows 10's bug?

    alt + tab not working

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