The Windows Key + TAB shortcut has stopped working on my computer, how do I fix this? RRS feed

  • Question

  • For Windows 7 Professional.  I always used the 3D Aero Cycle on my computer with these shortcut keys, but I went on my computer one day and it all of a sudden stopped working.  The combination of these two keys now does nothing.  ALT + TAB still works to cycle through application, but I prefer the other method.  Is there a way to reset this so the Windows Key + TAB will bring up the 3D application cycle again?

  • Hi,

    First, you need to check whether the Aero effect function is enabled on the computer. Please check it in System properties=>Go to Advanced tab. You may also choose to adjust the visual effects by yourself.

    Note: Also, you need to ensure the keyboard is good or the two button all can work without any problem separately.
