    Hi guys,

    just got my new laptop and I'm loving vista.

    windows + tab is a really cool feature but it has recently stopped working for me.

    alt + tab works fine, but when I hit windows + tab it acts as if I'm just hitting the tab key

    I know the windows button is still functioning properly because windows + d still takes me to the desktop.

    I don't recall changing any settings that would effect this, but maybe I'm wrong.


    Do any of you have a possible fix for this problem?

    ugh, why would you want that terrible resource hogging eye candy, because u like it.


    well u may have disabled aero, that is what enables the windows+tab function, also there is a process you may have turned off, i cant recall the name of it, that is a part of aero.
