( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I use Windowmaker on X Windows, and F12 pops up a list of open windows -- I use it daily.

I just tried the Windows (tm) key and got nothin'. I guess Windowmaker isn't set up to do anything with that key.

Certainly the most unused keys on my keyboard are the three loners:

[Print] [Scroll] [Pause] [Scrn ] [Lock ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [SysRq] [ ] [Break]
I think ^P used to do a Print Screen under DOS, but I haven't used that feature in ages. No idea what Scroll Lock does. I think Pause does a ^S/^Q toggle, like XOFF/XON, and I guess Break does a ^C.

I also have a bunch of browser buttons -- Back, Forward, Stop, Mail, Search, Favourites, Web/Home, and also My Computer, Calculator and Sleep. Never pressed any of them -- certainly not the Sleep button -- that way madness lies.

The funniest thing on my keyboard is the lovely silk-screened Microsoft (tm) logo. Heh, Red Hat Linux on this workstation for the last three years, pal.
