Sorry, but currently there's no option to arbitrarily change Alt + Tab behavior. That is, being able to press a modifier key that would make it "local" rather than "remote" on-the-fly.
However, this makes a good feature suggestion. Let me move this topic to our "Feature suggestions" forum and also add it to our wish list. Our developers will take a look at it and see if it can be implemented.
It's interesting because Alt + Tab currently moves you forward in the list of windows, and Shift + Alt + Tab currently moves you backwards in the list of windows. I personally do already currently use Shift + Alt + Tab to move backwards in windows. So this new feature will mask that old feature, but only on the remote PC. I wonder, is the hotkey selection settable?
But, anyway, i can also use Windows + Tab and Shift + Windows + Tab to go forward and backward thru the windows (in a different order, most recently used) and i use that a lot, and that's still there.
I *finally* :P upgraded to 6.3. This feature was announced in 184.108.40.206. My viewer (portable) and my host (the agent) are at v220.127.116.11.
But when I tried Shift + Alt + Tab it just cycled backwards thru the REMOTE windows, like usual. Do I have to enable it? I notice that this key combo is not listed in Viewer -> Tools -> Options -> HotKeys, whereas the other new one released at the same time, Alt + F12, to switch from full control to view only, is there.
BTW, we were thinking about maybe changing the Shift to something else, like "A" key for example. Sometimes people indeed use Shift - Alt - Tab to cycle backwards and they expect to find this behavior available during RU session.
Meant to say that: both are windows 7. Alt-A-Tab? But 'A' isnt a modifier.
I suggest you stick with F12 since you use it for other things. Looks like based on default settings
are still available. And it would be nice to be settable in HotKeys like the others.
Note that, really, it does not have to be, technically, "cycle between local windows", but more like "shift focus to local window manager". Once that happens, Alt+Tab and Shift+Alt+Tab will be serviced by local window manager. As will Window+Tab and Shift+Window+Tab. This would require say Shift+F12, then let go of keys, then Alt+Tab. So it takes one separate key combo extra to start cycling. For example, what I do now, when focus is on the remote window, is click the task bar of the local windows, then Alt+Tab works locally.
One more detail. When you do Alt+F12 (or click the icon) to go into view only, all the keystrokes STILL go to the remote window manager. Instead of that, in view only, it would be nice if
Alt + Tab
Shift + Alt + Tab
Windows + Tab
Shift + Windows + Tab
went to the local windows manager, much like they do for any other window of any other program that's in focus.
