comment Using :lgrep command in Vim and hiding results
This is great, except for being forced to use Ctrl-l to do cleanup afterwards. Is there any way for it to auto-repaint or something.

comment 'less' command clearing screen upon exit - how to switch it off?
This is especially useful for the man pager, so that man pages do not disappear as soon as you quit less with the 'q' key. That is, you scroll to the position in a man page that you are interested in only for it to disappear when you quit the less pager in order to use the info. So, I added: export MANPAGER='less -s -X -F' to my .bashrc to keep man page info up on the screen when I quit less, so that I can actually use it instead of having to memorize it.

Ahh great, a -1 for a perfectly legitimate question.

@Ramhound, my point is that if Pokki changed the Windows key to access the Pokki start menu pop-up, they also should have added a "Windows and some other key" shortcut to get the old behavior. That's all I am saying.

@Ramhound, yes but as good as Pokki is, I'm surprised that there is no single Windows-??? key combination shortcut to get you back to the modern UI.

Yep, hovering over the right half of the screen does bring up the charms menu. So, at least using the mouse you can get back to the Modern UI from there...

Thank you! That does work and I've given your answer an up-vote for the time being. I can't believe that they've made it this difficult to access the Modern UI, though. I was hoping that there would be a single-key combination that could get me there, like the Windows key used to.
