hello guys,
i tried a lot of searching but couldn't find a working solution fpr my problem.
Is there any way I can send windos shortcuts with girder4?
like win+e for explorer or win+tab for window rotation
I used command capture for these issues on winxp pro but this doesn't seam to work with vista...

thanks for help
greetings frank

(windows vista 64 home premium; girder 4)

I'm not sure about the rest because I switched back to XP (vista is complete garbage, but I'll let you find that out for yourself), but to use the window rotation you can create a shortcut and set the target as

C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe DwmApi #105

and then execute that shortcut with Girder.

I don't think Win+TAB will work since you have to hold down the keys for that to work.

You may be able to simulate a mouse button press on the relevant task-bar icon though.

thank you guys the shortcut works very good I don't even have to use an extra shortcut i can direcly use girder "execute" for it.
where do you know this string from is there an index i can look at? or do you have to find it out yourself?

thanks for help...
