Ever since Windows exists there was a very handy Alt+Tab combination to quickly switch between open applications. Nowadays, when people are using many screens for single computer it might be less often used, but still is very familiar and handy.
Not for so long time, but still for quite long, Microsoft is doing everything to make that simple, obvious and easy to understand combination work as wrong as possible in their products, so from time to time you may run into a really weird behaviour. For example:
- Pressing Alt+Tab in Excel 2010 or older, when two or more workbooks are open does not work (user focus remains in the same workbook there wanted to switch from)
- Pressing the same combination in Microsoft Edge causes focus to shift through tabs rather than active applications.
Fortunately these inconsistencies and workflow breakers exists only in certain Microsoft products and are easy to fix.Read More “Various wako problems with Alt+Tab and Microsoft products”
