Remove Menu ALT TAB VI

Hi all

I wrote an application that takes care of the interface user-swappable. This has been achieved by my user interface via Server opening VI and passing a cluster of references to the application main VI control UI and their inclusion in the dynamic events.

The problem I have is that both my and my in the Menu ALT + TAB in windows. I put my 100% transparent and removed from the task bar, but don't work just how (or if its even possible) to remove in the Menu ALT + TAB.

Attached is a demo application showing my problem in LabVIEW 8.6. To see the problem, open (check the block diagram is closed) and press the arrow of the execution. You will have a window ( on the screen and one in the task bar but two available via ALT + TAB.

An overview of this would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards



I made minor changes to your VI. I think it should work.

  • Change of the position of the context menu ALT - TAB (change active windows)

    Hi all

    I would like to know if there is a way to move the position of the menu that appears when scroll you through the windows when you press ALT + TAB. Currently, it appears in the center of the screen, but is it possible to move to, say, the left side of the screen? (The reason why I'm doing this is because unfortunately a part of the LCD screen is broken).

    Thank you!

    There is no way I know to move the chart of Alt + Tab to another area of the screen to avoid a damaged screen area. You can try the alternative method of Windows key + Tab to see if it gives you results, you can work with that.

    FWIW, the price of repair/replacement of a laptop screen went incredibly in the last year or two. If you think it's simply not worth replacing, you might want to investigate on what charge a reputed store to replace the screen or even do it yourself if you feel up to TI (there are many You Tube videos on the subject). If you think that the cost is half (or less) of what you expected already that it is.,.

  • questions to alt tab with some applications

    It's really a question of two parts:

    Application 1: version of Office Internet Explore (1 or more tablets, 1 or more windows).

    Application 2: steam (steam main window, steam client chat [optionally]).

    When alt tabbing in IE-> steam works as expected.

    However, when alt tab in the main window of steam is to the last position right before the "desktop" and not the first. Pretty frustrating.

    If you open the main window and instant messaging client this does not happen on the steam chat client - sometimes, othertimes it does.

    It appears when the steam main window is closed and then reopened, sometimes both - but if the main window is opened first, then the IM client, it won't happen on the instant messaging client.

    Seems pretty random when it happens and if you open another application the problem disappears for a while - generally I see when opening of Netflix, steam + chat client and no other applications.

    Has anyone else seen similar behavior or found a potential solution?

    In addition, in win 7 there was no way to leave native alt tab features and just delete the entry "desktop" in the alt tab / windows tab (except the key "reg" to return to the menu older alt - tab style).

    It is not that it can remove all leaving the normal alt tab win 8? That admission has always been a very great pain, esp since you can simply mouse over the lower right or use win + M to get the same results.

    I'm wondering for months why Steam was having this behavior, yet no one I talked to that had the same problem. Thank you for alerting me to the fact that it is a modern application problem. I'm usually the Mail app open in the background, so I always had this Alt + Tab behavior for a long time and thought it was quite a problem for Steam client.

  • ALT - tab

    Dear Firefox,
    Whenever your application is open, and I'm trying to Alt - Tab to hide the fact that I do not actually work, the little thing of Alt - Tab selector in the Middle remains open and gets stuck. I found that this happens only when Firefox is open, no matter what site I'm on. I tried to reinstall and whatnot, but I think it's time for me to move. This decision comes after reinstall 10 times because the application will NOT open. Good luck and thanks for the memories!

    A few artifacts display can be caused by the display driver incompatibilities. Try to disable the use of Firefox graphics acceleration hardware.

    You need to restart Firefox for it to take effect, so save any work first (e.g. you compose mail, documents online that you are editing, etc.).

    Orange Firefox button or classic menu Tools > Options > advanced

    In the mini ' General' tab, uncheck the box for "use hardware acceleration when available.

    If you restart Firefox, the problem is solved?

  • Cannot use Alt - Tab to change the program and that it causes another similar question of program


    When I hold Alt and Tab close, it will bring up a menu for me to choose some programs.  But the problem is now this menu will not stay longer than 2 seconds, I release the key for sure.   And at the same time, my other program has the similar problem, when I left click it used to bring up a temporary menu and I would move and choose, since I have this program Alt - Tab, I have this problem on the program (Ninjatrader).

    I tried to disable all services in windows and the boot menu, nothing works.

    I remember the laptop starting up during midnight, and the next day he has this problem.

    It's very strange and interesting.    Would be - this hacker or some sort of glitch in windows vista?

    Thank you.

    Hi MoreYummy,

    1. what desktop theme you are using?

    First try this step below and check if the program selection menu will appear.

    Method 1

    Try pressing the keys CTRL + Windows + TAB. You can then press TAB to cycle through the windows. (You can also press RIGHT ARROW or ARROW down to navigate forward one window, or press LEFT ARROW or UP ARROW to navigate to the back office.) Press ESC to close Flip 3D.

    Using Windows Flip 3D

    Method 2

    Check if the problem persists in safe mode.
    Start your computer in safe mode
    Restart the computer to return to normal mode

    Method 3

    If the problem persists in safe mode, then it is possible that the system files are corrupted on the computer where the origin of the problem.
    I suggest that you run a SFC scan, which would be a system file corrupt on the computer search and replace.

    Scan SFC enforcement procedure:
    1. click on the Start button
    2. in the Start Menu, click all programs Accessories followed
    3. in the Accessories menu, right click on the command line option
    4. in the menu that appears, click on the option "Run as Administrator"
    5 If you have the enabled User Account Control (UAC) you will be asked to consent to the opening of the command line. You simply press the button continue if you are the administrator or insert password etc.
    6. in the command prompt window, type: sfc/scannow then press enter
    7. a message is displayed to indicate that "the analysis of the system will start.
    8. be patient because the analysis may take some time
    9. If all the files need replace SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Vista DVD for this process to continue
    10. If all goes although you should, after the analysis, see the following message "Windows resource protection not found any breach of integrity.
    11 after the scan finished, close the command prompt window reboot the computer and check.
    The analysis may take some time, so be patient. Windows allows to fix corrupt or missing files it finds. If the information of the installation CD is required to fix the problem, you may be asked to insert your Windows Vista installation CD.

  • Custom in the alt - tab popup icon

    I was wondering if there is a chance to see a custom icon, even in the alt - tab popup (in mode "non-aero").

    After that I changed the icon of the application pinned to the taskbar without problem, removed the IconCache.db file and rebooted the system, the alt - tab pane always displays the icon of the original application.


    I see that you want to set a decorative custom of Alt + Tab . However, the definition of a custom icon on a superposition of Alt + Tab is not possible.

    Kind regards.

  • Aero Peek, ToolTips and Alt - Tab no longer works

    Do not think that changes have been made between the moment where they worked, and the time they were not. I may be wrong, however.

    If I use a program and I move my mouse to the bar of tasks and the mouse on another program, I executed the preview is displayed only briefly (the order of milliseconds). If I click on the taskbar first, then hover over a preview icon if poster correctly, and if I mouse over the preview window is brought to the foreground. However, if I click on the program overview is only sporadically brought in the foreground.

    I also noticed that Alt + Tab doesn't work correctly or the other. When I hit alt - tab selection menu is still only flashed on the screen even now ALT.

    I also noticed that tooltips do not work in any program, unless I clicked on the taskbar and then mouse over the balloon in an open window.

    They do the same thing. When I mouse over a ToolTip it flashed briefly, don't even have enough of time to read.

    Perhaps thought it might be a problem of mouse or keyboard, both passed out, still no solution.

    Computer restarting doesn't fix it.

    Already run the troubleshooting and no problems were found.

    A system restore to before the problems were there, but it does not solve the problem either.

    Performance verified and all parameters is activated.

    As I said earlier I can't quite imagine what has changed between where he was working and the time that it was not. I have literally follow me to the top of my computer, sitting on a Chair in my office, read a book for a few hours, came back and it didn't work.


    Try to perform a clean boot. A clean boot may exclude other third party applications that might disturbing tasks with your bar, do the right thing. Click here to learn more about the clean boot and get instructions on how to perform.

  • Windows flashes when scrolling on in the task bar, Alt - Tab does not.

    OK it drives me absolutely crazy. for these past few weeks, my taskbar and alt - tab has been broken. When I move the taskbar of the program im trying to open just blinks but never actually maximizes.  I noticed that it only flashes I have my cursor over the icon. But if I leave it right on it to open its own it never made. Alt - Tab is also the exact same thing (which makes me assume that the question is related.) I click on buttons and pop-up windows, but does not open anything.

    I looked around and I know that this question emerged with a reliablitiy of windows there are few up-to-date kb977074, but wasn't in my update list. SO I now have no idea what to do. Ive played around with the parameters monitored for defective or damaged files, and really, I don't want to have to do a system restore. especially since ive restored my computer and he was doing it before I updated. so... ideas would be very appreciated.

    Thanks in advance :)


    Welcome to Microsoft Community forum.

    I would be grateful if you can provide us with the following information to help us better understand the issue.

    1. You have installed all the programs, application or updated before the show?
    2. How did you check the defective or damaged your system files?
    3. Do you receive an error message or error code while using the taskbar?

    Try it out below mentioned methods and see if it works for you.

    Method 1

    Try to perform a full scan of your computer using Security Microsoft Scanner.


    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.


    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.


    Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

    Method 2

    If the problem persists, I suggest to check the integrity of the system and for this you may need to run the SFC (System File Checker).

    Scan SFC will be scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions.

    How to use the System File Checker tool to fix the system files missing or corrupted on Windows Vista or Windows 7

    1. Go to Start, click all programs and open the Accessories.
    2. Right-click on command prompt in the list programs, and then select run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click OK.
    3. In the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER:

  • Windows 7 - Windows key or Alt + Tab does not

    I have Windows 7 Home Edition, and suddenly my Alt + Tab feature has stopped working.  I use it regularly, so I don't know what I did to disable.  In addition, my Windows (the one next to the left Alt key) key stops working to bring up the Start Menu.

    The Windows key still works because when I press Windows + 3, it loads Google Chrome because it is the third in the taskbar...  Tab key works alone as well I use it to switch between the boxes username and password on log ons.
    I can't do not also appear in the windows program by clicking on the icons in the taskbar, taskbar icon won't turn on and flashes, but the actual program window is not pop up. I have to press the Desktop button on the right side of the taskbar to minimize everything and then bring up the desired program window.
    I've been shooting a few changes to my Windows 7 because I wanted to accelerate and I followed this Web site:
    I was also disabling some of the Start Up programs and services to speed up / save the battery power.  Is there a specific Service Microsoft need to Alt Tab functionality and the Windows key to work?
    Thanks in advance.
    • Is it on laptop or desktop?
    If it happens on the desktop, you can try to connect the keyboard to the computer of differnet and check.
    If it happens on your laptop, you can try to create a new user account and check. If it works in a new user account, then probably your user account have been damaged and would need a fix.
    Now search for the question.

  • AE crashes on alt - tab

    Hi people,

    I did a lot of searching on Google, but can't seem to find an answer.  When I alt - tab of After Effects, then come back, after effects takes several seconds (5-10) before he does not react to what either.  This occurs even on totally blank projects.  I tried to remove the 3rd party plugins, but this doesn't seem to help.  I have not tried to uninstall and reinstall because I am on a business license, and it is a huge pain for HER to come and go through this whole process.  I hope that there is something else before I try it.

    If anyone has experienced this before?

    First began to do the same thing this morning.

    Spent an hour on the phone with Adobe support.  Tried a lot of things that didn't work, but one thing only.

    Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro / 8.0 (changed the name of this folder, so first had to rebuild)

    Users / [username] / Library/Preferences/Adobe/After Effects/13.0 and 13.1 and 13.2 (changed the names of all those files so Adobe had to rebuild)

    Seems to work fine now.

  • Why no Alt - Tab feature (true last asset, not only to the top or to the bottom of the line)?

    I see the keyboard shortcuts to go up and down the tabs open (ctrl-shift-tab and ctrl-tab) and go directly to a section numbered etc...

    what I really want, it's a last tab function if you press several times simply would take you back and forth between the last two tabs. As if I have 8 tabs open and am currently on 7 tab and then click on tab 4, then I press this hotkey I should directly back to 7. If you press on again, he would go back to 4. etc.

    Take to fill out a tax form or something as an example. I have my browser open, tax assistance, taxes and other code as well as with my paystub and the info I enter data in multiple pages. Several times, I need to bounce back between tabs with the info about it (paystub) and with the entry of data on it.

    I suppose you could get around having only two desired tabs open in the window of the browser or by having two browser windows open every page necessary, but it is this rooted function (alt - tab in windows goes directly between your last two open applications, regardless of how you opened) that it just seems very natural to want to so the tabs of the browser to only go back between the last two.

    really think that this should be developed... seems simple (to a POV without instruction) and serves a specific purpose.

    Thank you.
