Could you be more specific?  Most Emacs info nodes use `M-<TAB>' [1]
and the tutorial explains that you can use ESC instead of M- (Meta):

,----[ C-h t ]
|  M-<chr>  means hold the META or EDIT or ALT key down while typing <chr>.
|         If there is no META, EDIT or ALT key, instead press and release the
|         ESC key and then type <chr>.  We write <ESC> for the ESC key.

I don't think this problem is specific to windows.  Probably there are
a lot of Window managers for X11 that bind M-TAB by default.

Bye, Reiner.
