Windows key? I still use my trusty, clicky, heavy IBM PS/2 keyboard from the early '90s. And I have three spares I, um, liberated from one of our offices: "Wouldn't you like a nice new, clean keyboard?"

No Windows key shortcuts, but a great weapon of self defense. (And a nice pen and screwdriver holder across the top edge.)

If you ever feel the need to own such a keyboard with a Windows key take a look here:

All the look and quality (and noise) of those old IBMs, but with Windows keys as well.

You knows that just pressing the Windows key and "D" takes you straight to the desktop, right ?

But this way I can just whip the mouse cursor over to the bottom right. It's a very quick motion, useful when there's something I need right at that moment.

What I wish is there were some way to change a program so that it doesn't respond to the "minimize all" command. I don't want Winamp on my second monitor to minimize with everything else.

You could always install Serious Samurize and create a config with all that you need from winamp and have it locked to your desktop that way when you minimize all its still there.

Why not just right-click on any image on a web page (ie a page of webcam stills) and select Set as Desktop Item?

Nice and easy.
