Express Menu In NewUI
If you've chosen NewUI from the Change UI module in Preferences,
then the Express menu appears at the left end of the task bar.
Running Apps Window
If you're using NewUI and NewDesk, there's another way to
see which applications are running and to switch among them.
Just press both mouse buttons at the same time (or press
Ctrl+Alt+Esc) and a list of all running applications will
appear. If you have difficulty pressing both mouse buttons
at the same time, hold down the left mouse button while you
press and release the right button. To switch to an application
on the list, double click it (or choose it with the Arrow keys
on your keyboard and press Enter to select it). To dismiss the
Running Apps Window, close it like any other window.
