Windows 7: Alt-Tab in Remote Web Workplace

Alt-Tab in Remote Web Workplace

Hi - from a new Win7 user used to XP...

I use Remote Web workplace to connect to my work Windows 2003 Server. When I'm in Full screen mode of being connected to a work desktop, Alt-Tab cycles through my local apps instead of the apps on the remote desktop. I know that RDC has an option to change this in the Local Resources tab. I wasn't sure if RWW used the same settings or had similar settings of its own. I think that when using XP, Alt-Tab cycles through the remote's apps and so I didn't know if there was a way to make Win7 do the same.

CWG - Did you ever find a solution to your problem of Alt-Tab cycling through local apps instead of the apps on the remote desktop? I use RWW to connect to my work machine from my home HP laptop, and the Alt-Tab function does not work. If I login with my Asus laptop via RWW, Alt-Tab does work. I've tested on other laptops, the problem appears to be with HP.
