    Step away from the Pearl before someone gets hurt.

    HOLD DOWN the alt key, then press the Escape key, without releasing the Alt key.

    This is what I see if you hold down the alt (bottom left of KB) and press the escape key (right of the trackball). You can then scroll thru the open apps.

    Thats why I set it as one of my convenience keys. Otherwise you have to continue to hold down the alt button to scroll.

    If they show up as you scroll then they are open.
