Keyboard Shortcut for 'Minimize Active Window'.

Anonymous 2 months ago • updated by RaMMicHaeL 2 months ago 2

I was looking at the functions available via the Keyboard Shortcuts portion of the Advanced Options window, and I was hoping I could set a keyboard shortcut to minimize the currently active window, but this functionality isn't available. Please add this functionality, as I often want to minimize a window without un-maximizing it first, and I doubt I'm the only person who would appreciate this functionality.

Thank you for your consideration.

Please note: I mean that I can use Win+Down to minimize a non-maximized window, but if it is a maximized window, it un-maximizes it, then pressing Win+Down again will minimize it. I would like to make a keyboard shortcut (e.g. Win+Alt+Down) which will directly minimize the window without un-maximizing it first.

Meanwhile you can have a similar functionality by using this method to run nircmd with the following command line:

nircmd win min foreground

Also, you can use Win+number to minimize a maximized window, but you need to keep track of the window location.
