Did you try Alt+F1?


Thanks. No, I had no reason to assume that it was Alt+F1 I should use. On w32 you can use C-ESC or the windows keys.

I see no reason that GNOME should not adopt to this. It is really a usability issue for w32 users. It would certainly be attractive to windows users if those keys worked - and I guess that is one of the goals.

But this is of course of topic here.
