I wonder if this is related to the Theme.

Not on my system. Going completely through the alt-tag and returning to the

continuing to alt-tag will skip some programs that appeared the first time

Umm, that is entirely not correct, a minimized program is put at the end of
the alt+tab list, but it is definitely there.

Beats me, I'm pretty sure the pane is always present on screen for me
during an alt+tab, even though jaws only reads the application name.
I do however seem to recall the pane sorta getting stuck, but that's
only a very vague recollection.

Soronel,

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.

With XP, I could predict in which application a press of alt-tab

me. In essence, it was wherever I'd last been.



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?
