y40 keyboard shortcuts

Recently transitioned from a Macbook Pro to the y40. Does anyone know the keyboard shortcut to switch from a full-screen application (i.e. while gaming) to the desktop, without simply exiting the game?

Re: y40 keyboard shortcuts

hi GrClark,


If you have only one application running, pressing Alt+Tab should automatically minimize the full screen application that's currently running and will automatically switch to the desktop. Otherwise, you will need to hold the Alt key then continuously press the Tab key until you get the desktop icon.
