Hi guys,

This is a very annoying problem, when I switch between programs I press Alt-Tab however recently an annoying bug has crept up where I have to press Alt-Tab twice in order to switch programs, it sounds trivial but it's so annoying. Can anyone let me know how I can get around this?

One thing I should mention is that I have this add-on for my Windows Xp that allows me to actually see the pic of the applications I'm switching to similar to Vista. Anyway I don't think that's the problem as that has always worked with no headaches.

P.S. Also how can I change my default e-mail as it is no longer [email protected] and I wish to receive my e-mails at a different address.

Firstly reset the keyboard repeat rate in Control Panel, to max try again with Alt - Tab and then if that works OK, reduce to the level that it still works.
If still no success try this link below, the Alt Tab replacement


For email see screenshot attachment
