Re: Alt-tab appears random in Win7

Thanks. As I'm going over saved JAWS list messages on Win7 and office 2010
questions to teach myself my new system, I notice a message you posted
concerning the task switch pane. This pane isn't ever-present, but it does
crop up from time to time. Could this be a clue?

Not sure what is going on for you but it seems pretty stable to me,
creating a last-in first out stack, the application I had focus on
being first in line, the application that had focus next and so on.

I do notice that from the system tray I need to use alt+shift+tab to
get to the last focused application rather than alt+tab, alt+tab takes
me to what I would think of as the second app in line.

I'm finding in Win7 that there's no pattern. I could land in the previous
application or just about any other open window, including the desktop.

Similarly, if I go to the system tray and escape out of it, often as not I
end up in an application that is different from the one I was working in.

Has anyone else done a better job of detecting patterns? Is there, by any
chance, a solution?
