[Feature Request] Support Alt+Tab properly
« on: June 09, 2008, 06:14:58 PM »
When focusing another app when FARR is open and then trying to get back via Alt+Tab FARR only flashes shortly but then nothing happens. Instead FARR should be brought to top.

That could be indeed useful.

That's strange... FARR doesn't even show up in my alt-tab list....

wraith: Check your options. On the  "Display" tab, check "Show on taskbar when active". If you're running Vista64, it might still not appear on alt+tab, but at least it is shown on taskbar.

Oh, that solves the problem!
Is this (technically) the only way to do it? Are windows without such a task bar entry never accessible via Alt+Tab?
Why is FARR blinking very shortly when pressing Alt+Tab if the option is not activated?

stuff in the tray doesnt show in Alt-Tab at any rate [edit/ well now FARR does :)]
when does it blink? - I mean if it's in the foreground or in background when you Alt+Tab? (just checking it here, seems okay - xp home)

If i press Alt+Tab (without the option being activated) and FARR is on but hidden behind another window, I can see FARR for a millisecond but then it's again hidden.
