So, basically, Alt+Tab doesn't do what it is intended to do, which is to swap between windows on the fly. It shows the thumbnails, but does not switch. I can, however, hold Alt but release Tab, and click on the window I wanted to flip to, but that's still inconvenient. I've tried checking my settings, even editing the registry. No dice so far. Any ideas?

None, afaik. It's a near-new install, too.

I figured it out, a few days ago. Was checking out some settings in DisplayFusion, and wouldn't you know it, there was a combo box under the "Alt+Tab" section in its settings that was set to.... something. But I changed that to "disabled" and the built-in Alt+Tab works as intended now.
