I was wondering if it is possible to switch tabs while in Windows using Fusion (i.e like how you would alt/tab in general on a Windows machine). So far it only switches back to the Mac side, so I was curious if I could make tabbing into other applications/windows in Fusion easier.

  • 'switches back to the Mac side' doesn't add up. When you're running in Boot Camp Windows, there's no 'Mac side' running. – Tetsujin Sep 13 '16 at 14:40
  • I'm not sure, but when I press tab+command, it goes back to the mac window. (There is safari, finder, and VMFUSION (I don't own a mac, so I have limited knowledge of how any of this stuff works). – Bobby Ores Sep 13 '16 at 14:50

    Then you're using Fusion, not Boot Camp. Boot Camp boots exclusively to native Windows, Fusion is a virtual machine. I don't know how Fusion works compared to Parallels - the other brand of virtual machine - but in Parallels alt/tab works fine to swap between Windows processes, Cmd/Tab swaps between Mac processes, of which the VM is one. – Tetsujin Sep 13 '16 at 15:05
  • Sorry about that, I thought they were the same thing. Thanks. – Bobby Ores Sep 13 '16 at 15:18

The keyboard combo on your Mac keyboard is option + tab.
