hey everyone. im lookin for a program i heard from a classmate but i'm not sure what its called. basically you can press a key combination and you can switch between desktops. for example, you're in a game and when the teacher walks by you could could press it and switch to a desktop instantly. yes thats an example :rolleyes: anyways, i would appreciate it if someone could tell me what it's called. thanks!! :)

Hmmmm... lemme see... ahhh here we are: http://www.autohotkey.com/

Sounds like a nifty program for creating custom shortcuts... you will however have to do a bit of work to find out where the 'show desktop.exe' is located...

Oh wait, no I did all the work for you, never you mind...

The exe is located in a similar directory to this: C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

Just assign a shortcut key combination that runs the 'show desktop.exe' and you should be set :)

couldnt i just do that with windowskey+d ? =P but thanks i'll have a look at that program it might be useful for others. my classmate said the desktop you switch to is like a fake desktop or something. im not too sure since it was a few days ago and i was gonna ask on the forums straight away but the forums were down.. :(

hmm that program is pretty useful actually. thanks sinister one.

Heres a thought... WHY DO YOU CARE?!

EDIT: I just realised how stupid that is. Your telling someone not to game on a gaming forum... wow...

Sorry, but I hope your PC freezes when that moment arrives....

Cause I'm sick of illiterates graduating from schools?

Um, game all you want, but the classroom is for education. NVidia has a desktop switcher packaged in with its drivers.....

hehe i dont wanna start a flame war or anything and im not bragging but my grades are pretty good.. its just i get pretty bored in religious education and I.T. classes since i usually finish things before anyone does and i just dont care about religion at school.. yeah end of discussion anyways if you know the program, it would be much help.

my laptop is ATi Mobility Radeon 9700. not nVidia.
