Lost a Window? Use Windows Shortcut “ALT-Tab” to Find It!

In TrialWorks Tips by trialworksLeave a Comment

How many of us open multiple windows simultaneously? How many times have you thought that your screen was “frozen,” only to find that there was a dialog box open somewhere behind the scenes?

Use Windows Shortcut ALT-Tab to scroll through your open windows and find the culprit.

Here’s How It Works:

From your Windows keyboard, simply press the ALT key and the TAB key at the same time. If you’re like me, you’ll see multiple windows running as demonstrated below:


Press the Tab Key to scroll through the various windows until you find the application you need, and then release the ALT-Tab keys. Voila! The missing window is now available to you.

Beyond just finding missing applications or open dialog boxes behind-the-scenes, using the ALT-Tab keys is also a great shortcut for your work!
