    Force Show Desktop?

    Anyone know of a way/program to force the viewing of the desktop when a program freezes?

    When i update some game, my firewall doesn't know about it and i'm stuck looking at a black screen without anyway to get to the desktop to allow it to connect.

    BTW ... i know about ALT + ESC already. :wink:

    Any help will be appreciated! 8-)

    windows key + d? Thats what I use... only works sometimes when games freeze for me though. They usually lock up my graphics card.

    How about the power button? :-) No really I have used Alt+F4 but this will close it down.

    Actually, a small program that does that for freezing or unnresponding apps should not be too complex to make and would be nice to have. I'll look into making one and let you guy's know how it turns out.
