Get focus on desktop without mouse click

Postby TwentySix » Fri Jan 19, 2018 8:28 am

My HTPC connected to TV and don't have mouse, only keyboard with 'arrows', 'enter' and 'escape' keys. When I opened new pcmanfm window I can move between selected files in current folder using 'arrow' keys and open files with 'enter' button. But when I closed all windows, desktop don't get focus and I can't select any icon on it (using arrows keyboard keys).

How to get focus on desktop without mouse click on it?

you can try the show desktop hotkey, usually Super+d (super is usually the windows key).

generally i have to say that pcmanfm is not very good with keyboard-only usage :-(
