    Fix ALT+TAB in Windows 8.1


    Hi to all, my first post in this blog
    I've Windows 8.1 and the keys combination ALT+TAB doesn't work properly.
    This combination actives the function to switch from one window to another.
    The problem is that this function remains active for a very short time and I'm not able to select the window I want to see.
    I tried a restart in safe mode and the function works properly!
    I think the problem is a Windows service because the situation repeats identically with a clean install of the system(no driver or applications installed).
    Please help me!

    You could try pinning Windows Switcher to the taskbar and using the mouse to see if that works for ya.

    Thank you Edwin! I created the shortcut but I get the same effect: the flip 2D appears for a very short time.
    I used the shortcut both pinned on the taskbar and on the desktop but nothing changes!
