The use of Windows-D to minimise Windows

I learnt a new trick today from a techie that was helping me with something.

I have known about holding down the windows key and pressing the letter M, to minimse all windows that are open to the bottom of the screen, but I didn’t know about Windows and D, which does the same thing except with this you can reverse it, by pressing Windows and D again (to bring all the windows up again).

Another advantage of this, is I can do this one handed as the letter D is closer to the Windows key than the letter M.

Another useful tip, is the combination of Windows-L which locks the computer – very useful if nipping out to the loo for a few minutes, and you don’t want your office mates to send rude emails to your line from your computer.
