Problem sending LWIN and r

Recommended Posts

Gonzola

Hello,

I'm having an issue when attempting to bring up the RUN command. Left Windows key and r.

I've tried the following

Send("{LWIN r}")

Send("{LWINr}")

Send("{LWIN down}")

Send("{r}")

Send("{LWIN up}")

None seem to work..Am I missing something to combine the LWIN and "r"?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you, that will work.....

big difference between skimming thru the help file and reading it. I "see" it now in the help file. Thanks again.

win+x

Okay I must be missing something as well. Have read the help file and tried everything Gonzola tried. I get the win+r to work but for the life of me can't get win+x to work. Manually win+x brings up the advanced context menu in windows 8. Any hints appreciated.

Already tried:

Send("#x") <-- does nothing

Send("{LWIN}x") <-- dumps x into search box

Send("{LWINDOWN}x{LWINUP}") <-- does nothing

Hey,

Did you find out how to send Win+x?

Send("{LWINDOWN}{x}{LWINUP}")

doesn't work...

but it does work with other letters : {i} , {c} etc.

:huh2:
