Support Win10 rs5 task switch list #8258
Link to issue number:
Summary of the issue:
In Windows 10 RS5, The Task switcher was re-written in XAML. Therefore this means ATs lost the ability to match on a particular window class in order to suppress reporting of the switch items' ancestry, thereby causing the switcher to be way too verbose.
Description of how this pull request fixes the issue:
Also look for the new UIA automation ID on the switcher list when choosing to use our task switcher item functionality.
Alt+tabbed around Windows with multiple apps open. Confirmed that only the app names were announced, rather than the task switching window itself also. Also confirmed that pressing windows+tab still correctly announced the task switch window as it should.
