A colleague uses the same Remote Desktop connection as I do. He is connecting on his normal OS, I am connecting from a VM. Everything works but one difference: When I do ALT+TAB it is done within the Remote Desktop, not on my HOST. When my colleague does ALT+TAB, it is not done inside the RD, but on the normal OS.

Every time, the RD was selected, not outside the window.

Why does ALT+TAB not work on my colleague?

Both OS: Windows 7, both connecting through VPN, same RD, same RD server.

  • Do both machines have the same version of Remote Desktop installed? – Stese Apr 13 '17 at 7:50
  • Yes, 6.3.9600 on both. – eckhart Apr 13 '17 at 7:55

Check that this setting is the same on both RDP Sessions :-RDP Options. local resources tab
