  • Screen button to open Task Manager

    What code can I allocate to a button to open up Task Manager whilst testing and modding skins?

    I am fed up rebooting every time I crash or lock up (no keyboard) my UMPC and I can't get to the taskbar.

          Actually I use "AltTab2.2.2" by XBrady for this function. Its always onscreen, can be 100% opaque and has many options for button codes

            It's doesn't lock up - it's just that the skin has no exit button available or RR cannot be controlled - it only happens whilst I'm messing with the skin.

            Thanks, I'll add that and try it.

              no exit button is not a good idea, how do you close RR ?
              I do recognize the problem though, ive had it happen to me where RR will freeze up, usually its because winamp has frozen and RR is waiting on something from winamp or the like.
              I run objectdock plus so whenever this happens (very rare) i just hover my mouse at the bottom edge and my tabs popup where i have a link to taskmanager.
              If RR is still responsive and winamp has hung, i have a button in my skin that will kill winamp and restart winamp without having to exit RR.
