As we all know, the Windows 10 October 2020 update is just an upgrade similar to a service pack, but it introduces two new features-a theme-aware start menu and a new Alt+Tab experience.

Naijatechnews understands that Alt+Tab is a popular multitasking keyboard shortcut, which has existed in Windows since Windows 2.0, and its last update was in the 20H2 version, which added a new feature.

Windows 10 20H2 modified the Alt-Tab working method related to Microsoft Edge, allowing browser tabs to be displayed as a separate application window on the Alt+Tab screen. Therefore, the user can use Alt+Tab to switch between open windows.

Microsoft also said that with the upgrade of Windows 10 in October 2020, the Microsoft Edge interface has been added to the Alt+Tab interface to effectively improve the multitasking experience.

However, according to foreign media WindowsLatest reports, some users started to experience problems with the Alt+Tab function after applying the Windows 10 October 2020 update.

According to a large number of user reports and testing by foreign media, a bug in this update may cause the Alt+Tab sequence to change unexpectedly. When you switch to a certain window between applications, it will open another wrong window. .

Of course, some users confirmed this problem in the feedback center, and Microsoft is also aware of this phenomenon.

“Alt-Tab’s performance started to become very contradictory. For example, if I use Alt-Tab to quickly switch between A and B, it will be fine in all likelihood. Then when I use Alt-Tab for the tenth time, it Will randomly switch to the C window I haven’t opened for a long time.”

Microsoft said in a feedback center post that they are investigating these reports and that they have fixed the issue in the preview update.

In other words, although Microsoft may solve the Alt-Tab problem, there is a high probability that the new version will not be released this year, because Microsoft has decided to reduce the year-end updates.
