Hi,

I am running Actual Windows Manager 8.8.3 on Win 10 Pro 64bit.

If the Multiple Monitor taskbar is enabled and is set to "individual" mode, then pressing the ALT TAB key does not show the windows of secondary monitors. It shows windows *ONLY* of the primary monitor.

To replicate this bug, go to Configure > Multiple Monitors > Taskbar and do following:
a. Check "Mult-monitor taskbar"
b. Set mode to "individual"
c. Check "Multi-monitor task switcher"
d. Click "OK"

After doing this, if you try to use the built in windows ALT + TAB functionality, you will notice that windows of Secondary monitors DO NOT appear in the switcher task list.

NOTE: If you set mode to "Mirror" or "Mixed", the ALT + TAB functionality behaves as expected.

So, when will this bug for the "Individual" mode be fixed?

Thanks,
Alan.

This is a known bug. We'll try to fix it. For now i can't tell exactly when the bug will be fixed. But once it is fixed, we'll post a notification in this topic.

For now you can use either Mixed or Mirror mode or enable the "Replace the system taskbar" option of the Multi-monitor Taskbar and Task Switcher section as workaround.

Best regards.
