Keyboard Hotkey - Where is my Screen?

HP Classic Desktop Keyboard and Mouse Combo
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good afternoon, 

I am seeking help with the hotkeys on my HP Classic Keyboard, specifically the top left hotkey which looks like 2 windows inside one window. I've inadvertently pressed this key on a number of occasions and my active screen disappears and is replaced with my normal desktop with no open windows. I've searched every way I can think of looking for a description of this hotkey, but have found nothing with the exception of this same question posted in 2017, but not fully answered. Can someone please tell me how or if I can go back to my active screen?


Thank you in advance!

Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Can you share a screenshot of the key are you referring to?


Meanwhile, based on your description it looks like a new desktop screen key. You can check the active desktop screen by clicking on the active desktop screens icon on the taskbar.


Please refer to the below image.



Also, refer to the below link for more information on keyboard shortcuts.


Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
