    it is easy to hide them or minimise, but is there a keyboard shortcut to restore windows?

    am i missing something obvious?

    Just click on the application icon on the dock that represents the window.
    If it's Safari just click on the Safari icon on the dock. Same with any other app.

    There will be a little blue ball underneath any app that is open.

    Not totally sure what you mean but, say you close or minimise a finder/application window, just clicking on the dock icon of that application will bring up a new window if it was closed or 'maximise' a minimised window.

    Theres no keyboard shortcut because you would need to be in that app for the shortcut to work and so a shortcut would actually be more effort than just clicking an icon (which you need to do anyway to get into the app).

    I think that makes sense. :)
