I've never done anything other than alt+tab and it still works on this machine.

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
