mandrake 9.2 menu when the "windows" key is pressed

i remember that when i press the "windows" key (which opens up the start menu in windows) , mandrake 9.1 displays at the top a list of applications i have recently used.
the default in mandrake 9.2 seems to disable that feature.
anyone knows if that feature still exists in 9.2 and how i can enable it?

By default, when pressing the "Windows" key in KDE, Mandrake displays the entire main menu. I never used 9.1 and am not sure about its keyboard functions, or if this feature even exists in 9.2. However, this could vary between different desktops and configurations, I only tried it on KDE. Just letting you know ;^)

i found it.
right click on the task bar (i think that's what it's called--the bar at the bottom of the screen), and change the settings. there's should be an option the called display the most recently accessed programs or something
like that (i'm in windows, and don't remember it exactly).
