Probably an easy Linux question

Just bought my first 2 linux players and one player allows me to hit the windows key on the keyboard so I can minimize the presentation and have access to change the displayID in the RiseDisplayNetworkII.ini file, the other was working for awhile but now hitting the windows key has no effect and I can't figure out to get back to the desktop to modify that file. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Larry
The Super key may have been changed or disabled on that other player or it may be a keyboard issue as to why it's not working.
For the meantime try Ctrl+W to exit the presentation, select 'Edit Rise Vision Player Configuration', change the DisplayID and then Restart the Player again (these menu options are in the new installer).

Ctrl+W or Alt+F4 work fine for me :)

I get nothing with the Windows button.. but you can also Alt+Tab to switch between windows, if say you have something in the background. (For testing, I typically have a command prompt back there.. for data monitoring, etc)
