Sometimes I am working on several cygwin command line windows and for some reason I get them all minimized pressing win+D, but then I am unable to bring them back up where they were without clicking each one of them. I really hate this because sometimes I do this often and I screw myself up when I have to bring like 8 back up again. Is there a command in windows 7 to bring them all up at once.

If there isn't, is there a way I can program one?

If you press Win + D again, it should restore all of the windows back to where they were.

It doesn't after I switch to something else, which is often what I do. – Flethuseo Nov 7 '11 at 15:20
