Changed BOSS KEY to Ctrl+Windows+Alt easy to press isn't it?

I received couple of request asking for 
1. Customizable shortcuts,
2. Option to turn on /off shortcut , 
3. To change shortcuts as it's already colliding with Windows 7 shortcut.
Customizable shortcut, I am working on it.
the other two request I have addressed now in PMW 2.1.920.
View the ChangeLog for more detail.
Download PMW 2.1.920 Installer (Recommended for Normal user).
Download Portable PMW 2.1.920 (for Advance user).

Please follow me on Twitter to remain updated about changes in PMW.
BTW how many of you noticed my son's picture in PMW 2.0 and 2.1?

Getting Power of PMW System Menu on Windows 7

Windows 7 has introduced the concept of Jump list and removed the old system menu.
But  you can get the old standard system menu (XP, Vista style) using Rammichael's
7 Taskbar tweaker

Please note that right clicking on title bar of any application, and
right click on taskbar thumbnail preview still gives the old style system menu with PMW menu injected ;).

I hope that in next version of PMW I will be able to give following two options to Windows 7 users.
1.  Inject PMW system menu into Jump list.
2. Allow user to disable Jump list and  show standard system menu.

Stay tuned. Sphere: Related Content
