Windows: ALT+TAB to animate task switcher does not work - confirmed

Asked by chsu8

I want sikuli to switch over different windows efficiently by doing ALT+TAB:

I tried using the command type(Key.TAB, KeyModifier.ALT) as well as type("\t",KeyModifier.ALT) and both did not work. Please let me know how to make it work. Thanks!

Tested on Win 8.1:
Found no way, to animate the task switcher neither with type nor with keyDown/type/keyUp.

So it simply seems to not be possible (no idea why).

An Alternative might be using the App class's focus feature.
