GNOME/Nautilus hotkey to unminimize window


Alt-F5 doesn't seem to work for this.

The Keyboard Shortcuts panel doesn't appear to have an entry either. There are quite a few lines reading Unassigned and Disabled in the "Window Management" section, however. I should probably look for the right method of customizing one of those. Rather than searching for it in Ubuntu Help or on the Web, I thought I'd pick the great brains of the folks here for a solution. And why not? This has nothing to do with a homework BASH question, or anything of that sort.

So how would I go about it, folks?

Alt-F5 will work, if the window is selected. The problem is that you can't easily select the window, because it's minimized; a catch-22. This was addressed in Gnome 3's gnome-shell: minimized windows are visible in the overview mode, and selecting a minimized window restores it.

In gnome 3 you can just select applications at on the task bar and everything that is minimize will show in the different windows
