Do you have a need to alt-tab? Why not just use the WinWaitActive() function?

WinWaitActive( "title", ["text"], [timeout] )

Pauses execution of the script until the requested window is active.

Once you find it, just do a WinActivate("title of your window") call.

Edited to add in a missing space between words

Alt+Tab keystroke example

;some code here

Send(!{TAB});send a single alt-tab combo

;more code could go here

Send({ALTDOWN}{TAB}{TAB}{ALTUP});this will hold alt down and press tab twice
;we can use that to go to the 2nd most recent window instead of the first

Edited to correct a commented statement that I messed up

Here's an example:

AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay", 1500)
Send("{ALTDOWN}")
Send("{TAB 4}");===== Change 4 to how many times to press Tab
Send("{ALTUP}")

It's all in the help file.
