Windows 10: Windows button + D shortcut exclusion
Windows button + D shortcut exclusion
I have been using windows 10 since a little after it came out, and I am and always have been fond of the Windows + D shortcut. For those who don't know, this shows the desktop and minimizes all programs. I would like to know if it is possible to exclude programs from being minimized when I use this shortcut. For example, say I have sticky notes open behind my current windows. To view it quickly, I press Windows + D, showing the desktop with sticky notes on it. Normally, sticky notes would get minimized along with all the other applications I'm running.
If this is possible and you know how to do it, please tell me how. I do not mind downloading 3rd party programs, and I do need to be able to repeat the process needed to achieve this process for multiple different programs.
Why not just use Task View in the taskbar to show all open windows ?
Unfortunately that wouldn't work for me, as I don't only use the Windows + D shortcut to view sticky notes, I use it to get programs out of the way, often. Therefore I would like it if doing that would not minimize sticky notes, or other selected programs, so that I don't have to unminimize them again.
Nothing I've ever heard of. Seems to me that would be an all or nothing toggle. Interesting idea though.
Hover your mouse on the thumbnail to get a quick peek.
As in my first comment, I said that would not work for me, and I clearly explained why. If you read what I wrote, you will see why it will not work for me
I just did a clean install on W10 and change my bios to UEFI (which it supports.) I'm having this intermittent problem with the Windows "Start" Button in the lower left. It just stops working - left clicking doesn't do anything, although...

WHERE is the DATA folder located? I am trying to remove it from the exclusion list.
We had a power outage earlier this week which shut down my PC. Upon restart, the 'normal' error screen that 'Windows encountered an error and didn't shutdown correctly' (Safe Mode screen) never appeared and it seemed to boot normally.
In Apps downloaded from the Windows Store (such as Words With Friends or a million other apps - not regular 'Windows Applications' such as Photoshop or something), they run in a special 'shell' that is obviously controlled by the OS. There are now...
All of a sudden the Windows Start Button turns brown (not blue) and when I left click on it something is said about having to sign out and a critical error. Clicking that button, which you have to do to get rid of the dialogue box, restarts the OS...
