moderated Re: how do you successfully alt tab with jaws in windows 10 update 21h1?
I just made an interesting fdiscovery I think.
I launched BBC radio 3, opened Outlook, word, and Excel.
I was alt-tabbing between them just fine.
So, to check that my settings had held from the other day, I tapped the Windows key and wrote “alt-“ I only had to write as far as the dash for Windows to offer Determine what alt-tab does in windows and I hit enter on that and found that it said, the last 5 open windows in Edge again.
That made no sense to me as I had changed that I thought to Open Windows only…
So I changed it again.
I checked and it was back to the 5 windows nonsense.
I searched for that setting again and found there is also a setting for Virtual desktop.
Once I got both set to the same Open Windows only; the setting has stuck and works fine.
That is as clear as I can be.

I will ask folks on a different forum to figure out if this is unique to JAWS.

I am having more closure / crashes of Outlook since latest JAWS and Win 10 updates. Also, ALT Tab issue for me consists of JAWS not reading the title of highlighted tab when I switch. This item is random and has been around a while.
You’re not alone but I have no fix. 😊
Actually, I have double checked on this Brian and it’s all set as suggested ever since I posed this question a while back. However, I still find that I can not get a rotating behaviour with alt-tab for more than say, two windows being open simultaneously. If I have bbc radio3 open as I do, plus outlook and for a while I want to open say, a word document, then outlook will probably vanish and I have to go back to desktop and restart it afresh. I wonder if others are finding this behaviour with latest jaws and win10 21h build 19043.

You know, it's just plain foolish to call a new feature, and its default setting, however annoying that might be (and, believe me, it's happened to all of us) a problem.
