I can't think of why that would happen.. Try it with different apps. Try a restart and see if that helps. Experiment.
I have tried different apps, I have tried restart, but still the same. Could it be my keyboard - Logitech Wireless Keyboard K750?
I doubt it, but if you could try another keyboard to see that would eliminate the possibility. Maybe check to see if you have any accessibility preferences turned on that would get in the way. Otherwise, have an expert take a first-hand look and perhaps they will spot the problem right away.
I used to use Tab Command, but now like to put my primary apps into different Spaces (screens) and just swipe back and forth between them using my Trackpad. This would also work with the new Magic Mouse. I admit I sometimes have to use Tab Command or Mission Control to find apps buried on different Spaces!
When I have an application minimized to the dock and then I navigate to it using Cmd+Tab the application does not restore out of the dock. I'm using 10.9. This is one area that I feel MS Windows a better job.
Minimizing applies to document windows, not applications. So when you have all of the documents minimized in an application, and you bring the application to the from with Command+Tab, the application is now in the front and can accept commands and such. But the document windows stay minimized.
If your intention is to hide the application, then use Hide instead of minimizing the document windows.
Hi. When I click Cmd+Tab, the Switcher appears, and when I keep Cmd pressed and click Tab, I move along the Switcher from app to app. However, when I release both Cmd and Tab, the highlighted app does not start and nothing else happens and the screen stays unchanged. How come. I run 10.9.1.
