Windows 11 Alt + Tab app-switching shortcut gets a new look — should Microsoft keep it?



The Alt + Tab keyboard shortcut, also known as the Task Switcher, is a feature birthed from Windows 2.0 in 1987, according to DBpedia. It lets Windows users press the Alt and Tab keys simultaneously to quickly and seamlessly swap between apps. For example, if Chrome and Illustrator are opened, you can use Alt + Tab to jump from the Google browser to the Adobe app in a flash.

Microsoft tweaked the Task Switcher feature and it’s currently testing the updated version with the Windows Insider Dev Channel. The most salient change is that the Alt + Tab keyboard shortcut will no longer take over the whole screen when launched (h/t DigitalTrends).
