Hi...
I use Win98 ... just wanted to ask if there is a shortcut
to maximize a window that is currently minimized in the task bar?

ALT + Tab makes me switch between the windows in the task bar.. and it maximizes the one i chose.

But , is there is a direct keyword shortcut to do this (specially if there is only one mimumized window in the task bar)

Also how to minumize a window (using keyboard shortcut)?
if a window is maximized.. how to get it into the task bar again?


I wonder if there is such a shortcut?

Here's a keyboard shortcut for minimizing a window:
A KEYBOARD SHORTCUT FOR MINIMIZING WINDOWS
Want to minimize an open window without reaching for the mouse? A keyboard shortcut should do the trick. Just press Alt-Spacebar, then N, in just about any program, and the currently selected open window closes.

I'll look for a way to maximize a window with keyboard. I know you can right click the taskbar button for a window and then click on either Maximize or Restore.

Maximizing a window can be done with Alt-Spacebar-X, assuming the window is open but not maximized. (possibly other than "X" in english version).

Perhaps I misunderstood... the Alt+Tab procedure works with only one minimized program window. At least in win95 and NT4. The prog comes up maximized.

You can have one that is winkey+D,
But this is going to be work only if you have minimized existing tasks using the same key combinations.
This will maximize all the tasks instantly.

Thanks

MS visual Scripting will do this using some special activex components.

But you need to create programs / scripts.

Give me a window name (title) you need to play with.
I will give it a try.
