|you know more than i do, but i did see: right-click on taskbar|
neutral-zone (not icon, just in taskbar) and select "minimize all windows". still a pita you ask me. i am putting dosprompt
into systray when i get time, and making batchfiles for all the
stuff i use in the default path. that way, i can just hit the dos
icon from systray and type "notepad dummy" for example, or
"wp profits" or "iexplore www.computing.net". everything old is new again: just give me easy access to my crud, don't make me have to do the eternal mouse-dance! I know i can
also do "START RUN", but i like to do things my own stubborn way. to each his/her own i says....
