It is weird that, when i press ALT + TAB it displays the current window as well as the

Code

DesktopWindowXamlSource
,

Code

Windows Input Service
windows in the alt + tab triggers.

Also kindly note that, If i check "Show window text below each Alt + Tab item", it is working randomly. Most times, it is only showing windows style and not following DF's style..

If you have any trouble in reproducing it, kindly let me know.

Update: Alt + Tab trigger works for 3 times, it doesn't work after that. And brings the windows's native alt + tab mechanism

Hello,

Could you send me a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

Could you also send me over a screenshot of those Alt+Tab windows appearing?

Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. Can you enable "Hide Windows Metro Apps from Alt+Tab" in the DisplayFusion Advanced Settings window, and see if those entries still appear after restarting DisplayFusion?

Thanks!

Thanks, i think, that fixed it.

But another problem is that. When ever i click "Apply" in ALT + Tab window, after triggering (ALT + Tab) this UI comes (Which looks nice.) but after few seconds, it is reverting to old style (Screenshot attached).

I just want the new Windows 11 style, what can i do to keep it like it?

Hello,

This isn't something we currently support, but we do have it on our list to add in for Windows 11. In the meantime, you can set Alt+Tab to "Disabled" in the DisplayFusion Settings window, and it should use the built in Windows Alt+Tab instead.

Thanks!

How to disable ALT + Tab ?

Currently "Show window text below each ALT + Tab item" & "Show the desktop window" is unchecked.

This means, it has been disabled or i have to disable it somewhere else?

Hello,

In the drop down list right above those two settings you mentioned, you can set it to "Disabled", rather then "Show on Current Monitor Only, Show Current Windows Only".

Thanks!

Thanks, i will disable it for now:

I also noticed that, when my cursor is in the primary monitor (it is displaying the alt + tab (native one)) but when i move my cursor to secondary monitor, pressing ALT + Tab makes no actions. even the default windows ALT + Tab is not working.

Hello,

If you change your taskbar mode in the DisplayFusion Settings window to "Windows taskbars shows all windows, DisplayFusion shows relevant windows", does that issue persist?

Thanks!

Experiencing same issue in Win 11 and disabling Alt+Tab in Advanced settings does not remedy. Another of my PC's does not have same issue but has different video card.

Thanks! I was experiencing the same ALT+TAB issue in W11 and I didn't know DisplayFusion was causing it until I read this thread. I've disabled that feature as well for now. By the way, I guess you are referring to the latest DF version (10.0 Beta 7), right?

Beta 8 still does not fix the issue, at least not for me.

Yep, same here. Just disable the Alt+Tab feature in DF and let Win11 handle it

Is there going to be a fix for this? The hide windows metro apps, does not fix this for me.

This issue should be fixed up in our latest beta, available here: https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta/

Please let me know if you run into any issues after updating.

Thanks!
