Win+Cursor Keys keyboard shortcuts for window-handling not workingat all

Rudolf Gelpke

On Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
the Win+Cursor keys keyboard shortcuts for window-handling aren't
working, they never where since first install. This is the third
installation of Win7 on my desktop system.

I especially miss the chance to maximize windows, as I can on my netbook.

I tried three different keyboards (USB), to no avail. EVERY other
keyboard shortcut I know of works, including the other WIN-key+... ones.
I haven't noticed any other quirks with Win7 on this system (desktop,
ECS board, Intel p43 chipset, Core quad cpu).

Anybody has an idea?

They mostly seem to work, even if I seldom use them, on my wireless
Logitech 520. Windows-F brings Google and I don't recall changing it.

Does the older Alt-space then X work? (Alt-space then enter to revert.)

Yes, that does work. Thanks for mentioning these sequences. I've never
regularly used them, but I might start just now.

Windows 3 rides again (-:! Just remember to avoid Alt-space then C.
(Which I use a lot - less hand movement than the alternatives.)

The main and the most glorious achievement of television is that it is killing
the art of conversation. If we think of the type of conversation television is
helping to kill, our gratitude must be undying. (George Mikes, "How to be
Inimitable" [1960].)
