Every time I go back to NetBeans I have to click inside the text editor so that I could continue coding. Not a big bug, but...
Changing the bug category and trying to reproduce ...
As we have found out this has already been reported as #187025. Marking as duplicate.
From the other reporter's description: you might try to hit Alt-Tab a little bit more slowly as it seems dependent on how fast you type it.
BTW even if we tried very hard on Win 7 with the same JDK as what you have we were not able to reproduce on our machine ...
