Problems using Alt+Tap shortcut Tags: Games ATI Windows XP Last response: June 14, 2007 7:18 AM in Windows XP Share dejay97 June 13, 2007 11:13:48 AM Hi, I have a problem cycling through active programs using the Alt+Tap shortcut, when I'm playing games. The shortcut works between normal windows (browser ect.), but just flicker the screen when i try from within a game. I have also tried windowskey+d and a few other combinations, but the games will simply not have over control to windows. Im using windows Xp pro and an ATI x1950xt pro graph card, with the catalyst controller. i have no other programs running, which could cause the problem. Hope someone has the solution. I suspect the ATI driver, but cant find anything on the ATI forum. All the best More about : problems alt tap shortcut Zoron June 14, 2007 6:15:13 AM It depends on the game... some games will lock-out the Alt-Tab combo as well as Alt-F4 and possibly others. Simply pressing the Windows key may be enough to minimize the game (it works with C&C 3)... but every game will be different. dejay97 June 14, 2007 7:18:55 AM Thanks for your answer. It seems to be a thing that happened after i installed the ATI card and catalyst control center. I was just wondering it, there was a trick to force a program to obey windows, after all - xp is the OS and should control the events. Anyway, it seems that if i Alt+Tap during the load, it still works when the game is running. So it might not be such a big problem after all, if i just remember to tap out during the load.
