    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?

    No, the desktop isn't cleared as well.
