Windows 7: Problem with Alt-Tab

Problem with Alt-Tab

Hi there, I'm a tech-numpty, so please be gentle with me! I use Windows 7 and yesterday did an online download of Office 365, which has installed Office 2016. All is working fine, except that my Alt-Tab funtionality has gone a bit barmy. From any Office application, pdf x-change, desktop or any other software I have open I can toggle as normal between files (and files within each application, eg, multiple Word docs). I can even toggle to Chrome. But once that Chrome page is up, no matter how many or few tabs I have open on it, I cannot toggle away from it, and have to minimize the window to do so. Flippin frustrating! Any help on how to fix this would really be appreciated, thanks!

Do you mean Ctrl-tab? Because Alt-tab is supposed to toggle between open applications. If yes and Chrome is the only application misbehaving you will have to reinstall Chrome.
