I just upgraded my desktop here at work (which runs Vista Business) over to SP1, only to find that I no longer have the pretty Alt+Tab interface. I loved that interface, where I pressed Alt+Tab to switch between programs, then while holding it down, was able to click on the program that I really wanted (I am notorious for having tons of windows open).
What the heck? Was my Vista Business not supposed to have that in the first place? Did it think my graphics card was good enough Pre-Sp1 and now it’s not? I still have Aero Glass, so I don’t know what is going on with this.
Argh, that’s what I get for adopting things early – and in this case when it’s released to the public.
Update: A reboot seems to have refreshed my graphics driver. It reset my resolution to very low, but after adjusting it I once again have my pretty Alt+Tabs. Note that this reboot took place after it said the Installation as complete (and already rebooted my system).
Update2: This seems to be rooted within how windows switches back and forth between Remote Desktop and how Windows switches between Windows Basic and Areo. It seems when I just do a disconnect from Remote Desktop, Vista stays in the Basic form until the next reboot (I haven’t tried the logout yet). This is better than RD on my home computer, which simply goes to a blank screen that I need to lock my computer and then unlock to fix. The Remote Desktop experience has been quirky to say the least.
