I want to hide a direct3d window (like a "bosskey program"). I have tryed some programs like 4t minimizer, but I cant...

Do you know some nice (maybe free?) program or script to accomplish this?

why not use alt-tab ? – Sathya Dec 10 '10 at 5:02

maybe because alt+tab doesnt hide the window... – Click Ok Dec 10 '10 at 10:08

Winkey + D = "Show Desktop". i need hide (i.e. cannot be viewed) – Click Ok Dec 13 '10 at 1:15

You can make your own custom hotkey scrip using the WinHide function of AutoHotkey. I have just tested this with some games running in DirectX mode.

e.g.

^y::WinHide,Counter-Strike,
^g::WinShow,Counter-Strike,

Ctrl-y to hide, Ctrl-g to show.

You could try Elongsoft's Hide Window Hotkey 3.1. I use it with debugging adobe air applications. Its nice because it can hide a window by changing its alpha transparency rather than other applications that try to remove instantiation.

Winkey + M for "Minimize all", perhaps?
