Event Type



XAML processes CTRL+TAB or CTRL+SHIFT+TAB key presses for tab navigation, and apps do not get a chance to handle them from the AcceleratorKeyActivated event. Starting in Windows 8.1, we will allow the tab navigation processing with CTRL+TAB or ALT+TAB or SHIFT+TAB.

If you handled the AcceleratorKeyActivated event in Windows 8 to do special processing, the event will get fired for Tab keys when invoked with CTRL, ALT, or SHIFT modifiers in Windows 8.1. Verify tab navigation with CTRL+TAB or ALT+TAB or SHIFT+TAB keys.
