    How to change keyboard shortcut for task view (Win-Tab by default)


    Hello chaps,

    I love task view (the thing which happens when you Win-Tab). On previous versions of windows I used a 3rd party app to perform a similar function, but now that it is baked into windows I'd like to use the official method.

    The problem is that I have previously triggered it by a pressing a special key on my mouse- which triggers a specific keyboard shortcut. Now unfortunately I am unable to tell my mouse software to trigger Win-Tab when I press this key. I imagine this is because the Windows key is a special key which only the OS can recognise, not other programs- am I right in this?

    Given this, the only way I can trigger task view via a mouse click is changing the required shortcut. Is this possible? Perhaps via the registry?

    Thanks!

    :)
