Actually, I've found that 'Ctrl + alt + left/right arrow' does nothing, 
but, oddly enough, 'LShift + LAlt + 1' reduces all opn windows to a size 
so all are visible on-screen at once; now, while still holding the 
LShift + LAlt' if I hit either the Left or Right Arrow keys,  it shifts 
to the noxt window to the Left or Right. Kinda neat; but, i still cannot 
access my other desktops  and can not bring back my Taskbars or the 
Menus ---- unless I reboot each time: because whenever I minimize or 
close an open window, the Taskbars and menus go away as 
I really hope someone can offer a solution to this one; as it's really 
irritating the willies out of me......... Perhaps, after my next reboot, 
i just no\eed to disable the Compiz effects.... I'd really rather not,
