Show desktop doesn't work when app isn't refresing
Hi,

I have a win application that performs some long calculation, and since it's single threaded it doesn't refresh the window in the process.
I was wondering why show desktop won't work because of that?
I mean I know the answer, show desktop sends a minimize commands to all the windows, and this app won't respond. But still, isn't there a better solution?

Thanks

what happens when you hold the windows key down and hit m? Does that override it?
