Alt + Tab wrong order

Using the current stable version of the viewer and host on windows 7, alt tabbing doesn't switch back and forth between the last two most recently used programs. Instead it cycles through all open programs.

Holding down alt while hitting tab multiple times is how you are supposed to tab through all open programs, just hitting alt+tab once should just switch you to the last used window.

Hello Daniel,

Thank you for your message.

Could you please clarify if the issue occurs when cycling through windows on the remote PC or on the local PC?  Also, it would be helpful if you could send us a short video. You can send it to

Looking forward to your reply.

The problem is on the remote computers.

Open notepad and type 1, open another notepad type 2, open a third notepad and type 3.
Hit alt+tab, alt+tab, alt+tab, alt+tab, alt+tab, alt+tab.

On the local machine it will correctly cycle 3,2,3,2,3,2, while on the remote machine it will cycle 3,2,1,3,2,1.

alt+tab should switch between the last two accessed/opened apps.

Hello Daniel,

Thank you for the clarification.

Unfortunately, we couldn't reproduce the issue. I forwarded this question to our developers to see if they can provide any input.

I'll get back to you soon with an answer.
