Description victordsouza 2018-05-05 11:21:15 UTC
Description of problem:
Alt+Tab does not work properly after a window is fullscreen

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora 28
cinnamon 3.8.1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a window(say terminal)
2. Now open second window(text editor/ writer / firefox or anything)
3. Press f11 to get the text editor to full screen
4. Now when I press alt+tab I still see the text editor not the terminal. Also if I type something now it will be written in the terminal(which i cannot even see on screen).Its as if alt+tab half worked.

Actual results:
alt+tab shows the current full screen window although keyboard controls shift to the other window.

Expected results:
alt+tab show the other window in front of full screen window

Additional info:
alt_tab works fine when window is not full screen.

You will need to report it upstream to be fixed.
