Alt Tab in Shadow (Mac Client) not working

Has anyone found out, how to ALT-TAB in Windows (in the Shadow Instance), while using the Mac Client?

It really annoys me to use Windows key to break out of full-screen apps and also not able to switch between apps via ALT-TAB.

I can’t even use the TaskView (WIN+TAB), because WIN is the CMD key in Mac and the equivalent to ALT+TAB for MacOS (CMD+TAB).

I remember that I tried to workaround this 2019 with some AutoIT-Script I build, but that wasn’t also not a perfect solution. But on my current fresh Shadow Installation, no such scripts and tweaks are installed.

Key Remapping doesn’t work and also hotkey-alteration via BetterTochTools wasn’t successful either.

So this bug seems to still existing since 2018.

How are you (the other users) solving it, what are your workarounds?

Can you try using the Windows on-screen keyboard? You can search for it in your Windows search bar.
