    How do you switch between Hyper-V VMs with a hotkey ?

    This is driving me crazy. Everything I search for doesn't come up with the right answer. I have two Hyper-V VMs and I want to run them both full screen and switch between them easily. At present I have to exit the VM into the host OS and back into the other VM which then is not full screen. Any ideas ? Many thanks. Gary

    On a single display system there's no way to do that. On dual / multiple display systems you can use ALT + TAB by first making a display not currently showing a full screen vm active, then switching task with ALT + TAB.

    The same can be done on dual / multiple display systems easy and fast using the Task View button.
