Some Key considerations when upgrading to Windows 11 

Sometimes it can take a long time for patches and bug fixes to transition into older editions such as Dynamics NAV 2013.  If you are working with Dynamics NAV and upgrading to Windows 11, you’ll need to be aware that not all older applications may work as expected.  However, there is good news from the wider User community in that the experience has been that working with Dynamics NAV on Windows 11 hasn’t seen any major issues affecting the application’s operation.

Unable to Alt+Tab on Dynamics NAV with W11? 

If you’re experiencing a crash when trying to view taskbar thumbnails, or while you’re performing Alt-Tab, it could be linked to having the scaling options turned on for your display.

To turn this off, open the Display options, Advanced Scaling Settings and turn off the Let Windows try to fix apps so they’re not blurry option.

This registry update is a workaround that helps you avoid it. The good news is it doesn’t change your default browser.

You can edit the Registry on the affected computer or deploy a .reg file throughout your organisation via Group Policy or similar.
