Is there a technique to access the windows task bar if a livecode app is in fullscreen mode?

Crtl-M will open the Message Box

then type this into the Message Box
toplevel stack "revMenubar"
To be fair; I have no access right now to a machine running Windows: but this works on Linux
and Macintosh, so I see no reason why it shouldn't work on Windows. 8)

Whoops, sorry: the Windows Taskbar . . . I'm one sleepy rabbit.

Crtl-M will open the Message Box

then type this into the Message Box
show taskbar
