My screen just went totally black! How can I get my desktop back?


If a Windows application switches into full-screen mode and then stops responding, you may find your entire display is black or displays a frozen image. To switch out of full-screen mode, press Command-Option-R, the keyboard shortcut for "Restore Display".

Pressing Command-Q will also probably work, but that will cause all of your Windows applications to exit.
