Usually I was able to move a window to another virtual desktop by pressing Windows+TAB and then moving the window to the target virtual desktop.

But now if I press Windows+TAB then nothing happens anymore. I only notice that the "active apps" symbol in the task bar is changing.

enter image description here

I tried it on another computer and there it still works.

The windows key is not locked on my keyboard.

    Did it work when you clicked the task-view icon and then dragged the desired window? – Valay_17 Apr 2 at 13:47
  • Where is the "Task View" button? How does it look – Black Apr 2 at 13:59
  • The one which you have circled is the task view button – Valay_17 Apr 2 at 13:59
  • @Valay_17, nothing happens if I click on this button. It just animates. – Black Apr 2 at 14:49
  • Seems like the feature is not working, it is not the problem of your keyboard for sure. – Valay_17 Apr 2 at 16:20


Today it works again after I started the computer. If you ever face this problem, then just restart your system.

  • This answer is confusing. You should clarify it by editing it – Ramhound Apr 2 at 13:06
