    Hello,
    Quick question. I know the shortcut to minimize windows to the dock, cmd-m,
    but is there a shortcut that does the opposite, restores a already minimized window in the dock back onto the desktop?

    Thanks

    How would the shortcut know what window to restore?

    They should make a keyboard command for restore:

    Command + R + 1 , 2 , 3, etc...

    I'm surprised this hasn't been done already.

    Also, I use Exposé and have my upper left corner programmed to "All Windows" and if I minimize something and put my mouse in the upper left corner of my screen, I won't bring up the minimized window. I think it should also bring up minimized windows.

    This is exactly why I switched to hiding windows (cmd-h) instead of minimizing them. That is, cmd-tabbing doesn't bring them back up when they are minimized but will pop them back up when hidden. Now, I hardly ever minimize windows but I'm hiding them constantly.
