I've been a Windows user since the earliest versions. Even used IBM's OS/2. I remember there used to be a key combo that minimized the current window. There doesn't seem to be such a combo any more. At least I can't find it. Is there a list of such keystrokes available anywhere anymore?

Try the 'Windows' key plus 'M'.

Here is a link to a definitive list of keyboard shortcuts from our very own Daves Computer Tips: https://davescomputertips.com/articl ... rtcuts.php

I've always used: Alt+Space, N
Let go of Alt+Space before pressing N.

windows Key + M will minimize everything on the screen (similar to Windows Key + D).

Hey Zig - Yep, that's right....Windows + M will minimise everything. Don't use keyboard shortcuts much myself and that was the only one I could locate. Tried your suggestion (Alt + Space and then N)....works well!!

I just use the mouse to left click once on the thumbnail preview in the Taskbar. Or to close all open screens, click once on the Show Desktop button.....that also works well and is very quick and easy.
