Why does it take 40 seconds to alt tab between programs? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In XP i could alt tab almost instantaneously
    In Vista it became alot slower
    In Windows7 it became even slower

    Everything else works fine, haven't had a single error since i swapped to w7

  • You can try capturing an ETL trace with xperf of the scenario on both Vista and Windows 7 and compare the two to see what changes. If it in fact takes 40 seconds to alt-tab between two programs, whatever is causing it will be very apparent. I'm curious to hear what that would be.
