Re: Windows key plus M suddenly stopped working

One cannot access the “Show Desktop” button from within the System Tray, or Notification area as it is now called, using arrow keys, because the “Show Desktop” button is not part of the Notification area.  One must use the Tab key to get there.
This is the same as using the Tab key to move from the Taskbar button area to the Notification area and so on.

Just tried that under Win10 Home, Version 1809, 64-bit and that works to navigate to it.

Visually it is the last button (object, whatever you want to call them) in the System Tray, AKA Notification Area.  I was surprised it wasn't eventually arrived on via right arrowing after a WinKey+B strike.

When it comes right down to it WinKey+D or WinKey+M are faster to achieve the goal of getting focus on the Desktop.

A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.
