Welcome.  This is a small program I threw together with Inspiration from Rigo's
ScreenSwitch program.  This is slightly different in that it only works when
used on an AmigaOne running OS4 and you must have a PC keyboard that has the
Menu key on it.  The Menu key usually has an image of a drop-down menu and a
mouse pointer selecting an item from the list.  With ScreenRotate installed,
every press of this key will send the current visible screen to the back.
Such that every press of the key will cause Intuition to rotate through
all the currently open screens in a loop.  That's it, that's all it does.

Also, this program is an example of how to write a program using neither the
CLib2 or Newlib libraries.  Because of this, the actual executable is only
slightly larger than 5K.  Of course, the source code is included.


In S:User-Startup, add the following line:

Run <>NIL: C:ScreenRotate

This program is also a Commodity and will show up in the Exchange program
allowing it to be disabled and/or shutdown.  As well, the CLI process can
be stopped by sending the ScreenRotate process a Break ALL.
