    Hmmm... yes. This should work better than trying to remember them all. My printer is spitting them out as I type. Thanx for the list, amaze.

    Very nice and concise, there is 1 sortof shortcut that you missed, in windows 98 only...

    Hold Ctrl, click on Start / Settings / Taskbar and Start Menu and you should (hopefully) see a 3rd tab called 'Deskbar'. Strangely everything on this section is blanked out, and i have yet to work out the point of it.
