I've got a TeamViewer session open. I can alt-tab to it, but then all hotkeys are captured by the TeamViewer session. This is great, but I'd like to be able to 'escape' back to the host without using the mouse, perhaps using some special meta shortcut. This question offers a solution using Windows RDP, but I the same key combinations don't seem to work in TeamViewer. Is there any solution for this?
Ugly, but no mouse; tested in
Windows 10 host, and
Windows 10 client.
Suppose you have a tab open on your host, e.g.
notepad (referred to as
original-non-teamviewer-tab) while you are working in a teamviewer tab that controls your
Windows 10 client:
enter (switches back to host, opening
alt+tab+tab (switches back to your
alt+tab (switches back to
Task Manager and switches back to your
If you are willing to accept
task manager to remain as open tab you can reduce the minimal required number of sequential key presses from 10 to 8.
https://www.techwalla.com/articles/how-to-alt-tab-on-teamviewer claims you can enable and disable
Sending key combinations with
scroll lock. That would reduce the amount of sequential keypresses to 2 in stead of 10. But I have not yet been unable to verify their solution.
Alternatively you could make an autohotkey script of the solution and map it to a single key press.
this is what did it for me: go to teamviewer options -> remote control -> and disable "send key combinations"
