    ALT+TAB window previews are getting stuck


    I am on windows 10 and I have been for a while, but this has only just recently occurred in the last day.

    Whenever I press ALT+TAB to switch windows, normally when I release the keys it will switch to the window highlighted, however recently when I release ALT+TAB it does not automatically switch it just gets stuck on the preview screen. I have to manually selected the tab with the arrow keys or my mouse to recover from it.

    This is only intermittently though.

    Things I have tried:
    Restarting machine
    Running virus scan (I am using Sophos Home)
    Reinstalling keyboard driver

    But the above things have not worked.

    Please could someone help me resolve this please?

    Have you had any solutions to this? I have been facing the same issue and not had a resolution in over a year.

    EDIT: I had commented on this thread as well for the same issue.

    I have this exact same issue, apparently only when trying to Alt+Tab away from google Chrome. Did you find a solution?
