Hello! I'm new on this forum i had a issue with alt+tabbing with playing a game.



Adding a internal command > desktop > "show desktop" on Nexus dock.

Alt+tab was fine before using "show desktop" on Nexus dock. After using "show desktop" on Nexus dock alt+tabbing was broke in game hard to press it.

Games : Counter-Strike 1.6, Half-Life, Sven-Co-Op etc. In Steam.

1920x1080 opengl game

Launch options : -windowed -borderless

This problem was fixed by restarting Nexus. Windows key + D was fine for showing desktop but using "show desktop" on Nexus dock has a issues.

This is my finest options,

Sorry for bad english.

Well, not sure I understand what you mean by ALT+TAB being 'broken', but the Nexus 'Show Desktop' internal command does exactly the same as pressing WIN+D (in fact that is exactly what it does, it simulates WIN+D being pressed).

alt + tab is only 0.2 milliseconds. it does not remain fully, it closes directly.

without using "show desktop" alt+tab was fine i can directly switch other programs.

I don't think the issue is with the internal command itself, but rather with what the dock needs to do to remain visible when Show Desktop is pressed (Windows will try to hide the dock and the dock has to fight this).

What happens when you press ALT + TAB for the second time?

Starting game (windowed borderless 1920x1080),
Win+d show desktop and use "show desktop" tool on Nexus dock,
Back to game and try alt+tab

Pressing the alt+tab is only stays 0.2 seconds, the nexus comes out of the dock then the alt+tab key is fine. Back to game and alt+tabbing still same problem, only stays 0.2 sec, after nexus dock comes out alt+tabbing is fine.
