Thanks for this, Jamie. I didn't know about holding the Alt key. Thanks for 
clarifying.

Cheers,
Amro

  Hi all,

  Hopefully I'm not teaching anyone to suck eggs here but the key issue that
  has not been mentioned yet is as follows:

  Alt+Tab or Alt+Shift+Tab (with the Alt key held down) will cycle through all
  the open application windows either forwards or backwards.
  Alt+Tab but releasing the Alt key after each press will switch between the
  last 2 used applications

  In other words, the key issue here is whether or not you release the Alt
  key.

  Regards,

  Jamie

          Hi Robin,

          Here, 32-bit Win-7 home premium, Jaws 11.0.1147, alt-tab moves from
  window to windo on the task bar, and shift+alt+ tab does the same, but the
  other way round. It has always worked this way on previous versions of
  Windows.
          Cheers,
          Pierre.

  Alt Tab will only alternate focus between the current opened window and the
  last window that was in focus. This is a Windows keystroke and not a Jaws
  one.
