Alt+Tab does not work in Windows 11

Alt+Tab does not work in Windows 11 - a situation that is a real nightmare for a huge number of users who have installed a completely new operating system, because they do not expect that they may have a similar problem. The failure occurs and almost no one knows how to solve it… From here, additional problems begin, as inexperienced users go to the OS settings and start "picking" everything there, and then they start complaining again, as other problems appear… In order to minimize such situations, we recommend using several methods described below to solve your problem.

  • Restart Windows Explorer: open the "Task Manager" using the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Shift+Esc" → find here "Windows Explorer" on which you need to right-click → select "Restart".
  • Enable the application switching option: launch the Windows setup menu → click on "System" → in the left part click on "Multitasking" → find "When pressing Alt+Tab, open windows are displayed" → it remains only to choose when to open applications.
  • Change the Alt-Tab settings in the registry editor: click "Win+R" → in the "Run" window, write "regedit" → in the newly opened window, write "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer" → now you need to find "AltTabSettings" and double-click on it → replace the value is set to "1" → click "Ok". It happens that the user cannot find "AltTabSettings", then he needs to create a "DWORD" with his own hand: click on any free space with the right mouse button so that the context menu appears in which you can select "New" → the values of the "DWORD" parameter (32-bit) → enter the settings "Alt+Tab". This is quite a working way to solve the problem where Alt+Tab does not work in Windows 11.

  • Allow preview: go to the Windows Settings menu → "Personalization" → "Taskbar" → find the parameter with the name "Use Peek to preview the desktop" when you hover the mouse pointer over the "Show Desktop" button at the end of the taskbar → move the switch to "Enable" (if the switch already "Enabled", it needs to be disabled and re-enabled). It happens that all of the above does not work, then you need to edit the preview in the system properties: go to the settings menu → "System" → "About the program" → "Additional system parameters" → note that on the "Advanced" tab, you need to select "Settings" → find "Enable Peek" and activate the checkbox on against it → click on "Apply" → "Ok".
  • Update the keyboard driver: go to "Start" → open "Settings" → go to "Devices" → "Keyboards", where you need to expand the menu → right-click on your device to open the context menu in which you need to select "Update device" → be sure to allow Windows to search for drivers in automatic mode on the Internet.

If everything is done correctly, then the problem in which Alt+Tab does not work in Windows 11 will leave your device, and you will be able to use it without any problems. Well, if the problem returns, then you can find a solution to it very quickly, since you already have experience in this direction and it will be even easier for you to do all of the above than the first time.
