Re: Question about the Windows m keystroke

Yes.  I continue to use Windows key m.  For me, it isn't worth the bother of getting used to a new command.  If you want to use the other command try it. I prefer to just press windows m more than once if necessary.  And no problems will occur if you press Windows key m more than one time.  As I said yesterday, if you want to use Windows key m, you can issue the command twice in quick succession.

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

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?

 

TerriLynne
