Playing in windowed mode, i just found out whenever i using alt + tab to switch between browser or anything and pcsx2, the windows always lost focus, hotkey like tab, f4, f1 and etc not working,
There's a little trick to get it working by press again alt + tab, you hear a ding like sound in background and still remains in pcsx2 window, and all hotkey working again. Another thing is if i don't use alt+tab but choose it with mouse via task bar, there's no problem.

coz i get used to using alt+tab all the time so it's a little bit not thet convenient--
So anyone can get it a test or if i've done anything wrong ??
sorry, but exactly what are you mentioning about. do you mean the hotkey's don't work after pressing alt+tab.

yes, excatly. it's kinda like lost focus, although the screen will switch back to pcsx2.
i tried latest git version once , but stop using it because of program starts slow compares to official release 1.2.1 version.

sorry, but didn't have this problem for me though Smile and, it's better using 1.2.1 since, it's the latest stable release.

well, by the looks of it, it's hardly a problem for me.

Yeah this is an annoying issue and happens with -every- version. I've tried this as early as r1888 up to the latest GIT versions, and it happens with all of them.

When it occurs you can fix it by simply pausing and resuming the emu, but it's a bit annoying.

Avoiding it entirely is done by using the mouse to switch like you mentioned.
