Simple question about switching between programs.


I am playing Uplink on a 2.4.6 linux kernel in the KDE Desktop
environment. I created a shell script to backup my agents with
one press of a button, however I can't seem to find a way to
get out of the actual game without signing off and quitting Up-
link and then clicking on the script on my KDE desktop.

Is there some sort of key combination (like Alt-Tab for Windows)
that can bring me to the desktop so I can easily backup the file
and then return to the game?

Thanks for response,

Hi - I would usually use Ctrl + Alt + left or right arrow keys, to switch to another desktop.
