Selecting the desktop?


Recommended Posts

Might be a silly question, but does anyone know how to select the desktop itself by using the keyboard?

Belive I've tried almost everything, ofc the GUI D shows it, but it does not select it, say if u've opened a desktop icon first on window then hit GUI D and then MENU it'll show the menu for that selected icon. I'd like a way to show the desktop menu, is this possible using only the keyboard in this scenario?

Thanks for any answers, dunno if this little problem deserves a whole thread but didn't find anywhere else suited to post it :)

Maybe there is an alternate way of launching whatever command you want to use?

Might be, I'm tryin' to access the MENU on the tesktop (mouse rightclick). Guess I haven't exhausted every option yet so I'll keep tryin' to find a way.

if you could somehow include the numeric pad in the duck script

How would the numeric pad help me exactly?

Yeah found it now, thanks! However I can't find a good reliable way to enable it, even if u could use the numpad so back to start.

On the other hand I found out if you DELETE the selected item, if there is one the desktop is automatically selected afterwards.

Then u can do what you want, return and CTRL Z the item back from the bin. Kinda bad if the item's too big for the bin thou, but most people don't leave huge files on their desktop.

Perhaps if you selected something that is on the desktop that you know is a shortcut, and delete that, example:

STRING internet explorer

Would have to use a shortcut that is pretty common to the desktop though. Does anybody know what windows automatically puts on the desktop on a virgin install?
