    Default Right-click + Windows Key

    I read somewhere that if you right-click while the windows key is depressed that your system would crash. Obviously I wouldn't attempt to do this because of the consequences. So. Is this really true, or just a hoax? I've been itching for the answer for a long time.

    That's like me saying, "If you jumped off a cliff, would you die?"

    and you saying "No, I just tried"

    ...
    I didn't expect someone to actually try it. But it says in my C++ book... and they're NEVER wrong.. So I'm replacing this reality with my own right now

    Lol, why? People recover from system crashes all the time It's no big deal so long as you don't have anything important in memory...
    But it says in my C++ book...
    Does it mention a specific version of Windows?

    /EDIT: Assuming it *is* Windows. I'm guessing so -- Macs don't have a Windows key, and we *n?x people are all too insecure to call it a Windows key Plus... hey... crashes. "Who ya gonna call?"

    The section isn't actually on crashing your computer, he just rambles on about a bunch of stuff

    Hmm... doesn't seem to work.

    The good news, though, is that a system crash is never too hard to find with a Windows computer. And that's true with any version.
