Royal TS breaks ALT+Tab on windows

If I have more than 1 SSH tab open, if I try to switch to the last app I was working on Windows by pressing ALT+Tab once, it takes me back to Royal TS.

This only happens if I switch between tabs before attempting to press Alt+Tab.

As I mentioned before, this is a side effect. Re-parenting a window is actually not really supported on Windows (see

As far as I know, there's nothing we can do :(

Thank you for the tip with Rebex, this behavior was driving me crazy ;)
