On my machine windows key M minimizes all programs windows and moves focus to the desktop.  It worked the same whether I was running jaws or nvda.

Windows+M will minimize all the windows? Really?
I've always had the Windows+M as a way to access the desktop easily. Anyone can confirm this?

Hi

 

Windows + letter M is a windows command. It will minimize all windows that are open in front of you to the task bar.

 

Use the Windows key + letter D to jump to the desk top.

 

In some cases you might have to do it 2 times but in most cases only the once from any where on the desktop, task bar etc.

Hi,
For some reason from last few hours, the nvda command windows key plus
M to go to the desktop has stopped working for me. When I quit nvda
and restart it again, I am able to go to the desktop. But as soon as I
click on start button, I am not able to access the desktop. I am sure
I have accidently disabled some command which is why I am facing this
issue. I use a laptop with windows 10. Would wait for your
suggestions.
 
Best,
 
Manoj
