How to Fix Tab (Dossier) Button Not working in Doom Eternal

Cause for Tab getting stuck

Pressing ALT+TAB starts the issue in the first place. If you specifically have a secondary monitor, this issue becomes prominent and the TAB can get stuck often.
Here are some fixes to get around this problem. Check it out…

FIX 1: Re-Opening the game window

  • Make sure to press LEFT ALT ONLY. This fixes the issue most of the time and you can now freely use the Dossier.

FIX 2: Change or Turn off your secondary Monitor

  • Secondary monitors are the main cause for this issue.
  • You can try to temporarily disable that and try only on primary.
  • Set the first Monitor as your primary monitor and use that only, then test by pressing ALT+TAB.

FIX 3: Using Secondary Commands

  • Set a secondary command for the Dossier (TAB Button)
  • After doing this, press it to make the Tab button working again.
  • This is a neat little trick you can use without the combination of key shortcuts to fixing the issue.
  • In our example, we set it to the “~” (Tilde) Button.
