It happened again: Apparently I hit some ctrl/alt/win key by mistake (I can't tell which), and immediately all windows on my desktop were terminated. Not closed, so they could be opened again, but terminally terminated. I couldn't open them: None of them were visible in an ALT-Tab. Opening Task Manager showed the running applications: Everything I had running was apparently still active, and the MPC-HC media player continued playing music. But their windows were gone, and the "Switch to" alternative was grayed out, unavailable.

I could start new applications, and they behaved as normal. I found no way to make my previously active (and apparently still running) applications re-open their windows.

I am running Logitech software on a "Logitech Craft" keyboard (which is excellent), set up to hide all windows when I tap the wheel. That minimizes them, but they are still available by Alt-Tab, which isn't the case I am now experiencing.

Am I the only one to experience this? The same thing happened a few weeks ago; this was only the second time, so it doesn't happen "all the time".

Do you know of any way of getting in contact with those application having their windows closed?
Both last time and this time I resorted to restarting the PC, but I'd prefer a less brutal way!

Am I the only one experiencing this, or is it a well known thing?
