Is there a way to automatically minimize all open windows after I enter the password in the lock screen in windows 7/ windows 8?

    I don't know about "automatically", but WindowsKey + D will minimize everything. – LilCodger Mar 18 '13 at 20:27
  • I know that @LilCodger but I want the automatic way. Thanks anyway. – user165733 Mar 18 '13 at 20:29

    See this question about running a script on login superuser.com/questions/15596/… – Brad Patton Mar 18 '13 at 20:42

Use AutoIt to send the Win+D command. Run it with the linked Script Logon way.


You can use AutoHotKey which could probably automate this for you with a little bit of easy coding. Alternatively, you could use Win+ hotkey to show the desktop.
