Up until upgrading to Windows 8, I would use Alt+Esc to make a window go to the end of the Alt-Tab list, and "get out of the way." For example, if my Alt+Tab list looks like:
A B C D E
With A as the active window, hitting Alt+Esc will make it into:
B C D E A
With B active, and Alt+Tabing once will end with window C:
C B D E A
Ever since I got Windows 8, this isn't working any more –– hitting Alt+Esc hides the active window, but Alt+Tab will get it right back.
Why is that? Is there a way to get it back?
