No Alt-Tab to Stickies (or VNCHelper)? Am I missing something? Empty No Alt-Tab to Stickies (or VNCHelper)? Am I missing something?

Maybe this is a Feature Request...but I find it exceedingly frustrating that I cannot use alt-tab to get to the Stickies App or VNC Helper.

With either app, I can run them and interact with them just fine (And they are truly helpful apps!). If I switch focus to another app, however, the only way I can get back to Stickies/VNCHelper is to click on their windows (or Taskbar Icon). None of their windows appear in the Alt-Tab (or Windows-Tab) application switcher/chooser.

Does anyone else have this issue? Is there a setting or some Registry magic that I can use to make that work?

Thanks.

If you turn on the task bar button in Stickies options, you should then be able to tab to it OK?

No Alt-Tab to Stickies (or VNCHelper)? Am I missing something? Empty No Alt-Tab but do have Win-Tab

I had forgotten to check back on this.

I have the "Show Task Bar Button" box checked on. I think I always have.

I still cannot use Alt-Tab to bring Stickies (or VNC Helper as well) to the foreground.

With it checked on, I can use Win-Tab and it is available as an item to choose & bring to foreground. (I hadn't ever noticed, but VNC Helper also shows up via Win-Tab, but not via Alt-Tab.)

Strange - using alt-tab here shows Stickies in the list of apps, and moving to it means that it comes to the front.

VNCHelper has a "tool" window, and they're not designed to show up in an alt tab list, and also don't show up on the taskbar (which was the thought behind choosing that option for the app).
