I'm not sure if this is the correct place to pose this question, but here goes anyhow. Does anyone know why the Windows Key + the arrow keys do not work in a Java Application. Is there some magic initializer api I need to call to make sure that my app does the appropriate windows thing when these keys are pressed. I note that netbeans (my ide) does the right thing (maximizing, restoring and positioning the ide appropriately - the thing that these windows 7 new keyboard combinations is supposed to do).
Thanks
John

You need to handle those in your app. The JVM does not catch and handle those for you. Maybe there's some Windows API you could call if you want to minimize/restore the app.
