That command certainly does the job, but I've been toggling around all
the active programmes on the task bar for years using simply alt tab....
Please somebody tell me I'm not imagining things here?


Cheers, Robin

Isn't it rather Alt Shift Tab to switch between multiple opened windows?
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.

        Hi Robin,


        Have definitely experienced your probs with the alt-tab, but,
have had it for some time where several windows are open. Have had to
minimise and sometimes close windows to hit what I wanted.


        Thought it was me.

        I thought this was just at work but now downloaded and installed
the latest build, 11.0.1447 and have a couple of problems.


        1: In certtain table views I visit regularly, I used to run down
the rows with arrow keys without missing a piece of text. Now, after
each arrow down in some areas, I get jaws saying "blank" before it will
read the next item in the view. Anyone who goes to the Allinplay games
site will see this happening in any of the game pages.


        2: If I have several items on the task bar, the alt tab
keystroke is malfunctioning. For example, I was on the web, had another
webpage item on the task bar and my outlook express inbox when I heard
the sound of an e mail coming in.


        Holding down the alt key and tapping the tab key, I just
couldn't get to my inbox, it simply alternated between the webpage and
the other item. One of the webpages had edit fields on it and I kept
getting shuffled around the edit fields with this keystroke... I had to
minimise everything and tab round to the task bar to get to my inbox....


        Anyone else had this? A conflict somewhere perhaps?


        Hmm, can I roll back to my previous build?


        IE7, XP Pro, Dell Optiplex machine


        Regards, Robin
