Alt+Tab strange effect

Post by Gandolf » 2019 May 20, 01:30

This is an odd one Nikos.
Customize | Keyboard use - displays the Keyboard assignments window on top of the X² window.
Alt+Tab to switch to another application.
I cannot then Alt+Tab back to X² - I have to use the mouse on the taskbar.

Not a big issue, but being a keyboard user, rather than the mouse, it caught me out.

O.S. is Windows 8.1

some of the system-reserved keyboard shortcuts like alt+tab are not available for use inside xplorer2

Not seeing this on Win 10. I can Alt+Tab back to x2 as expected, even with the customize keyboard dialog open.

Microsoft changed the way Alt+Tab works on Windows 10.
