Alt + H shortcut key in my application changes focus to another opened window. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have been using Alt+H  as shortcut key in WinForm submenu item. It was working fine in XP.
    In Windows 7, when we use the shortcut key, in addition to the intended task, it switches the window.
    (Focus switches as if we pressed Alt+tab). And this behavior depends on how we release the Alt+Key.
    If we quickly release the Alt+H keys, the behavior is not seen. And I use Ctrl key instead of Alt Key,
     It works fine (the switching behavior is not seen).
    Our suspicion is that it is something to do with Alt Key in Windows 7.

    How do we resolve this issue?
