Key Shortcut Command–Tab Highjacked by Keyboard Maestro - Newbie

Keyboard Maestro (KM) Newbie here.
I have edited this post Command+Tab is the issue NOT Command+Space
I have enrolled in MacSparky's Field Guide.
Before I installed KM I constantly used macOS keyboard shortcut "Command+Tab" as an app switcher. KM now gets in the way with a dialogue box.
Can someone help me to restore "Command+Tab" as simple, fast app switcher.

Hey Jeff,

Space is typically the keyboard shortcut for Spotlight.

I'm not aware of any built-in macros for Keyboard Maestro that use that keyboard shortcut, but it's been a long time since I've seen the default set.

Activate the keyboard shortcut.

Then go to View > Select Macro > Last Used in the Editor – if Keyboard Maestro is the cause that should be the culprit.

I always recommend to newbies that they turn OFF all the default macros and then go back and look through them to see what's useful. Otherwise you get surprises like this.

Sorry, Command+Tab is the macOS shortcut to App Switching that is causing my problem.

Untitled Macro 1 was the problem. I deleted it & problem solved
