Whoa, using the Win key for window-relates shortcuts is a really great
idea! Actually, that's what I do too :)  Finally a use for this dammn
Windows key. So I'm using it much much more often than when I'm using
I use Win-F1 to Win-F6 to change desktops, and with Win-Shift-F1 to
Win-Shift-F6 I can send an application to the desired destination. Or
make it sticky on all desktops with Win-Shift-Esc.
The scrolling wheel works, too, but I don't use it at all, I think I
better deactivate it. I also don't think like my remote desktop is my
admin desktop plus three, instead I think 'admin' is 1, and 'remote' is
4. And I can switch with one keypress, instead of having to scroll the
wheel exactly tree times.
