I've gotten so used to being able to pop open windows down on my macbook, that I find myself trying to do it on windows machines, and it's driving me nuts!

Is there a hotkey combination that works the same way? I mean, more than just Windows+D, because I only want to hide one application at a time - usually to check something I'm running at the same time under it.

Alt-Tab is good, but sometimes, I'd just like to get the real estate back on my desktop while leaving something else up.

EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

Not as easy, but to minimize the current window: ALT+SPACEBAR+N
Maximize is ALT+SPACEBAR+X

Maximizing effects the currently selected program in the taskbar. To cycle through the taskbar programs, use WIN+TAB
