    Alt + Tab preview has stopped showing (it still switches windows tho)


    Pressing Alt + Tab no longer shows the previews which indicates which window you're selecting to switch to. It still switches the window when you release Alt but without the preview that's not useful since I don't know what window I'm selecting. I guess it happened around the time I installed a major Windows 10 update.

    Before you delve into the depths of Settings, try the simple fix of restarting the PC. Use 'Restart' (not 'Shutdown') because this will avoid using fast start up.

    Thanks. Unfortunately, that hasn't resolved the problem.

    Make sure you are using an Aero Theme
    What Happened to Aero Flip 3D in Windows 8 10?

    There was a few Builds where Alt/Tab was not working.
    Using 'Task View' was the closest alternative, or, enabling the classic XP Style switcher with Winaero Tweaker.
