Some people use alt-tab, instead of the mouse,to switch between windows on their computer. Don't use it on this game if you have Windows XP.

If it is any help, you can still use the windows button, to go back to windows and it works fine.

I always use the Windows key on my keyboard to toggle back and forth between a game walkthrough which is minimized in my task bar, and the game.

Mainly because I never remember that Alt+Tab does the same thing,LOL! It's good to be warned that is a No-No for this game,but I wonder 'why' it is an issue with this one game? That's strange.

thot it strange they would post that msg in bold at top of game info for xp users when if u look at system reqmnts it's vista only but i guess if they didn't put it there they'd have a lot of complaints about it lol

I'm an alt-tab user, but I'm Win 7, so should be ok.

However, when you say use the Windows key, is
that all I have to do to get the same result as
alt-tab?

Thanks,

Yes. Why hit 2 keys when you can hit 1. I never knew about Alt/Tab till now and I've had PCs since 95.

Thanks Coronagold. I just learned about alt-tab
last year, right here in the forums. And as you
can see, just learning about the Windows key. LOL

What can I say, originally learned computers with
DOS and while I've updated systems, have been
lazy about updating knowledge.

I too use the window key, but on a few games that does not work. I have only played maybe 3-4 that it did not work on and thats when I learned on here the alt tab option. I just trialed and tested game since I have XP plays perfectly for me and the window key worked.
