 Private Declare Sub keybd_event Lib "user32" (ByVal bVk As _	Byte, ByVal bScan As Byte, ByVal dwFlags As Long, _	ByVal dwExtraInfo As Long)Public Enum SystemKeyShortcuts	ExplorerNew = &H45	' Asc("E")	FindFiles = &H46		' Asc("F")	MinimizeAll = &H4D	' Asc("M")	RunDialog = &H52		' Asc("R")	StartMenu = &H5B		' Asc("[")	StandbyMode = &H5E	' Asc("^") -- Win98 only!End EnumPublic Sub SystemAction(VkAction As SystemKeyShortcuts)	Const VK_LWIN = &H5B	Const KEYEVENTF_KEYUP = &H2	Call keybd_event(VK_LWIN, 0, 0, 0)	Call keybd_event(VkAction, 0, 0, 0)	Call keybd_event(VK_LWIN, 0, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0)End Sub
