Alt+Tab functionality difference between Win10 and Win7

Recommended Posts

I know Win7 isn't that cool anymore, but I have to admit I still have one machine running on it, working with paint.net from time to time.

Lets say I switch with Alt+Tab to paint.net, then I extend the color selector and copy a hex value, I want to paste it into my text editor.

So I press Alt+Tab again, thinking I will see my text editor, but I dont, paint.net switches the focus from the tools-window to the main-window.

Another Alt+Tab later I land in my text-editor.


I am used to this behaviour since forever, I think at some point years ago I even posted this here, I imagine I got an answer like: it is what it is, we can't change it.

But today I realized, Win10 doesn't have this problem. Do you think you can backport whatever change you made to the Win10 version about this?


Kind regards

I've never heard of any Win7 system ever exhibiting this behavior. It never happened when I was using Win7, back in the day. It's probably something specific to your configuration.
