Window switching: Alt-Tab for current desktop and Ctrl-Alt-Tab for all desktops?

09 Feb 2018, 07:15

Hi,

Using virtual desktops on Windows 10 you can control whether Alt-Tab switches between windows on the current desktop only, or, on all available desktops, in the Windows settings for Multitasking (Windows Settings/System/Multitasking).

I would like to be able to have access to two different keyboard shortcuts for these two functionalities, preferable Alt-Tab for switching windows on the current desktop only, and Ctrl-Alt-Tab for switching windows on all available desktops. Would this be possible to implement with AutoHotkey?

I am a novice on AutoHotkey scripting, but have managed to at least understand how to create a custom Alt-Tab script, as so:

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

; Ctrl-Alt-Tab
^!Tab::AltTab
; Ctrl-Shift-Alt-Tab
^!+Tab::ShiftAltTab


How can I expand this to get Alt-Tab functionality within and across desktops? Thanks very much!
