Windows 7: Task switcher hides behind windows

27 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Task switcher hides behind windows

Occasionally, the task switcher (which shows a mini-view of the open windows when I keep ALT+TAB pressed) moves to the back of all other windows.

In those occasions, when I stop pressing TAB but I keep ALT pressed so I can peek at the currently highlighted window, that window moves to the front and blocks my view of all other (mini) windows listed by the task switcher.

I don't know what event causes this bug, and what fixes it (it eventually goes back to normal). I've tried many things.

Does anyone experience this problem too? It's really annoying.
