Option - Make WinKey Double-Click Work Everywhere

RetiredEngineer 6 years ago updated by Michael (Ramen Software) 6 years ago 1

I run Win7 64-Bit. With "Disable Topmost" set to "2", I've found that double-clicking the WinKey removes the Start Menu from the screen, but leaves the Toolbar alone, with the cursor roughly centered within its boundaries. I love working this way, for a host of personal ergonomic reasons. There are a couple of other Window and IE11 arrangements which will produce this same desired result.

Would it be possible for you to include a User Option to make this "pop the taskbar" work from wherever the mouse is on the screen? This would be a big help to my own productivity, and, I think, that of other users.

Kind Regards,

As far as I understand, you're looking for a way to bring up the taskbar without using the mouse. Is that right?

You can use the winapiexec tool for this, with the following command line parameters:

winapiexec.exe u@SetForegroundWindow ( u@FindWindowW Shell_TrayWnd 0 )

You can create a shortcut with this command line command, and assign a keyboard shortcut for it.
