Solved Alt tab makes things slow Tags: Games Windows XP Last response: September 20, 2010 7:43 PM in Windows XP Share chico1st September 20, 2010 1:26:37 AM If I AltTab away from a program, like a game, then go back, often it becomes very choppy... any idea what I can do to fix this? More about : alt tab makes things slow lihuahellen September 20, 2010 7:31:33 AM Seems like it's a common problem. When I ALT-TAB out of the game to go back to Windows, and I do this 10+ times over say an hour, my World of Warcraft graphics get all 'chuggy' and the game runs so slow it becomes unplayable. I have to quit and restart it before it's usable again. chico1st September 20, 2010 4:31:05 PM no one knows a solution for this.... anyone?
