Hey guys, how y'all. Now I know this is an extreme beyond noob question, but I'm running Cod4 or a full screen app. Any key config / shortcut like winderz (winderz button of course) that will overwrite my game or app and show mw my desktop ?

thanks

Sometimes ⌘+F or ⌘+M works for me in those cases.

You could also try "four fingers swipe up" on the trackpad, sometimes that works and shows you your desktop. All you have to do to go back to the game is "four fingers swipe down" afterwards.

Or ALT/OPTION + TAB to tab to another window will do it
