Hi,

The shortcut to minimize to desktop (Windows key + D) is not working ever since I upgrade to Windows 7. It's almost like windows just ignores the combination.

This was really useful to me. Does anybody know why it isn't working or what else I can do?


Thanks in advance!

I never knew the windows key + D combination, but it works for me...

The key combination I use which seems to do the exact same thing (minimize all windows)
is "Windows Key + M".

Hope this helps.

Thanks thats a good idea, but I looked and where can I change keyboard shortcuts in Windows?

Even a .reg file would be okay for me. Thanks!

In general these are shortcut keys for Windows XP and Windows 7:

# Windows Logo+M: Minimize all
# SHIFT+Windows Logo+M: Undo minimize all

if these shortcut keys are not working means your keyboard settings are changed.
please check it with other system.

Any doubts ask me...

Thanks

Reference this Thread http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread183545.html it contains post about this problem. Also when I up graded from vista-need to wash hands after typing that word- I had to up date drivers from laptop manufacture to get keyboard and several other items to function correctly. Later---
