Can you use Windows D, when you want to leave a file open and Alt Tab back
to it when needed?

Best from,

I have noticed this behavior as well. Windows key-M does not always move
focus to the desktop in Windows 7 on the first try as it did in XP. I
sometimes have to execute it twice to focus on the desktop. But Windows
key-D always seems to move focus to the desktop right away. So what is the
real difference between these two keystroke commands, anyway?

This is a known problem. I have to issue the command Windows key m twice
almost every time I want to return to the desktop. If you want to avoid the
problem, just issue the command twice quickly instead of once. I have the
problem in Windows 7 and I've seen others discuss it as well. I wouldn't be
surprised if many users in Windows 7 and higher have this problem.

Subject: [TechTalk] Question about the Windows m keystroke


Hi all,

I do a lot of alt tabbing between windows, so I like to have my desktop only
show up when I hit Windows plus m. However, in the last couple of days, the
first time I hit windows key plus m, it is taking me to a place where it
just says start. I have to do it a second time to get to the desktop.



I thought this might be a keyboard issue, so I went and bought a new
keyboard, but it hasn't changed anything. *sigh*



Any suggestions?
