I searched everywhere including here http://www.howtogeek.com/198122/32-new-keyboard-shortcuts-in-the-windows-10-technical-preview/ I can't find how I can do this on Windows 10 like on Windows 8.

On Windows 8 when clicking on Windows keyboard it was working now on Windows 10 you get the menu !

How to do so ?

    in windows 7 win+m and win+d do that, have you tried them? – Máté Juhász Sep 9 '16 at 12:21
  • With windows 8 I forgot Windows 7 but you're all right :) – user75875 Sep 9 '16 at 12:37

The desktop can be accessed by pressing Windows-D. This will minimize all windows and set keyboard focus on the desktop.


As @Berend said, there's Windows+D. But, another way to do it is Windows+M, and then to re-open it you use Windows+SHIFT+M

  • Pressing Win+D twice will have the same effect as Win+M and Win+Shift+M – Prasanna Sep 9 '16 at 17:24
  • @Prasanna you're right, and eating ramen with zoom has the same effect as eating ramen with no zoom. They're just preferences :P – Ab_ Sep 9 '16 at 17:27
  • I did not understand the eating ramen with zoom part. I agree that they are just preferences. – Prasanna Sep 9 '16 at 17:31

    @Prasanna Forget it; my imagination is waay too wide. I meant that some people like ramen with zoom (a sauce) and some don't. :P – Ab_ Sep 9 '16 at 17:35
