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,
