    Alt+TAB (XP SR1)

    It seems all of a sudden using Alt-TAB does not bring up the window with the icons for open programs, it simply highlights the program on the taskbar. What settings have I inadvertently changed?

    Thanks!

    That sounds like the Windows and Tab key combination - you can open the highlighted program by hitting enter.
    Does your Alt key work otherwise?

    Thank you, Leif! I have a specialized keyboard which I inadvertently reset to factory default. This includesa the right ALT key acting as the Windows key. I have reprogrammed it back to be the Alt key. I had never used the Windows+Tab function before, so was slightly confused...a state I enjoy much of the time.
