How can I create a desktop or start bar icon which would should show the Start Menu in Windows Server 2012?
I having multiple remote connections in small windows (not full screen) and hovering the mouse in corners is pretty slow and difficult for me.
CLARIFICATION: @jmreicha and @kinokijuf provided a workarounds to show the start menu using keyboard shortcuts. Which is quite useful in common scenarios.
However, I am still solving the problem, how to easily show the start menu in systems where I connected from Hyper-V console (without direct RDP connection) and to the Hyper-V server I am connected over RDP. In that case, shortcuts just show start menu in the Hyper-V server.
In old Windows there was a shortcut (icon) on taskbar that shows desktop. How to create a similar shortcut to show the start menu? (Or do you know a lightweight open source solution for this?)
