Shortcut not active, win+D? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hallo

    Windowskey+D shortcut does not work anymore, it should do a Show Desktop command ie. minimize all windows.
    Any way to fix it?

    Im running windows 7 x64 ultimate

    (Bonus question: can i see what program might have "taken over" the shortcut through ex registry)

  • Hi, allonone:

    Please, verify if the same problem occurs when you start your computer in Safe Mode, without any programs running. To start the computer in Safe Mode, press F8 before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, and select Safe Mode from the menu.
