Would you like an active program to recognise keyboard input automatically after switching screens?

    Hi,
    I am working between a Microsoft Office 2019 (win) and Libreoffice (mac).
    When I switch with the trackpad between the two and I am back in the Microsoft Office 2019 (win), if I press cmd + F to perform a search, this command is not applied to the last used program within Windows. It produces no effect. But I expect the last active program to be receptive when I get back to Windows, and without having to click on that program window (if I do so it works).
    Mac Os Monterrey 12.1 (21C52)

    Processor Apple Silicon 3.20 GHz (4 processors)
    Installed RAM 6.00 GB
    System type 64-bit operating system, ARM-based processor
    Pen and touch Pen and touch support with 2 touch points

    Microsoft® Word 2019 MSO (Version 2201 Build 16.0.14827.20154) 64-bit

    Hi @DanieleE1, could you please tell me the exact steps you take to switch between apps with the trackpad? Ideally, please reproduce the issue and send us a tech report (Help menu > Send Technical Data...), and include the report ID in your reply here. Thanks a lot in advance!

    Thank you for the followup, Dmitry. I've tried to reproduce it, but with no success. It now works as expected!
