Question Shortcut to close hidden tracks and groups?

This will be an easy one for someone... Trying to close sidebars aside from the arrangement window with a shortcut. I watched a video on shortcuts and the presenter used ctrl+alt or the equivalent on a mac. I am on windows. I can get the width of the mixer tracks to shrink with the key command but in the video it showed closing the track list and the groups as well as the audio files list with a shortcut... Any ideas?

I know you can use window configuration.

Thanks Soybalm. I will look in the shortcuts manual for that...Not sure what that means yet.

There's a great video on using window configs when using audiosuite and turning off the red target on the upper right hand corner of the plug in window so it doesn't update to a new selection. It's just an example of what can be done. Also your markers can be used to change window settings. numerical enter brings up a marker and you can select how the windows are arranged I do believe that is pretty cool but the key combo is like .1. .2. etc. It's not a combo but rather a succession of key hits to call up your windows. I have yet to start saving templates but a template will save all these settings so every time you start a new project you can open a template and much of your work will be done.

Thanks as always Soybalm! But I think you are confused with what I am asking...Ya know the sidebar that has the visible tracks with the dot you can click to hide. I just am looking for a shortcut to open and close that....

Go to the window menu and create new window config while the track list and clip list are open. that will be untitled 1. Now close your track list and clip list, create new window config. this will be untitled 2.

Now press the number pad "enter" to create and open up the marker window. This will be marker "1".
Select tick off "none" in time properties. At the bottom of that marker window, you can select your ""untitled 1" in the Window Config line where it says none. Click and your window config will appear. Close and press enter again to create marker "2". Do the same thing. "none" for time and select untitled "2".

The shortcuts are the same regardless what the marker window does for you.

to open window config 1 with the list windows open, on the number pad, press the period, let go, press "1" let go, press period. to recall the other window, press period 2 period, one key at a time. It's a real quick move. This is assuming you have the number pad set to transport under preferences/operation. If it's in classic, just press period and the number.

This is an extremely powerful feature as well as the markers. I always mark off the choruses and verses. I don't find it too much of a bother to click the mouse to close the list windows. You can also save a minimal window, a window showing plugin's etc. Is this type of thoughtfulness that makes me work with this program.
