    It doesn't work here either.
    Are we talking the free basic version, or Plus/Pro versions?

    Running GE build 4.2.0181.2634 (beta)
    CTRL/ALT/A does nothing at all.
    There is nothing in the TOOLS menu either.

    Does it require SSE2 Instructions (This is a Dual PIII 1.4GHz with 2Gb RAM old office machine)

    Found it.
    Required CTRL-ALT.GR-A here

    The "Winkey" can actually be a useful key as it provides shortcuts to a number of functions. Some love it, some hate it.

    A Google search on "winkey shortcuts" will bring up lots of information about it.

    Now I'm bummed. "Winkey" stands for Win(dows) Key. I was pronouncing in "Winky" - like to close and open one eye quickly.

    Oh - and you can put me squarely in the camp of those who dislike the Winkey, too often my left pinkie finger hits it by accident when going after the Ctrl, Alt or Shift key and up pops the start menu. But I might get used to the Winkey-D shortcut, thanks for the tip on the Google search.

    You can disable the Winkey but it does require changing things in the registry.

    The Microsoft knowledgebase article is at this URL:

    Please note the warning about backing up the registry before proceeding.
