How do I cycle through windows with alt+tab on Pop!_OS?

So, I want to cycle through previews of windows, not applications with AltTab.

I tried setting Alt+Tab to switch windows in settings, but this made it seemingly do nothing. I did notice that if I were in Firefox with this setting on, when I held Alt+Tab and used the scroll-wheel, it cycled through tab history.

I solved the problem. In order to fix this, you must run ALL the following commands. On my first attempt, I only ran 1 but you have to run them all.

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-applications "[]"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-applications-backward "[]"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-windows "['<Alt>Tab', '<Super>Tab']"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-windows-backward  "['<Alt><Shift>Tab', '<Super><Shift>Tab']"

This worked in my case.

go to Settings > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts – Customize Shortcuts > Navigation

now remove Alt + Tab from Switch Applications and add it to Switch Windows instead.
