Shift Key Minimizing Windows

Please help.

I don't know what I've done, but whenever I hit the shift key on my keyboard, all my open windows minimize. Hence I have to use caps lock to type any letters in caps, and can't use the shift key for things like exclamation marks and question marks.

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.

Open System Preferences->Keyboard & Mouse. Look to see if you accidentally made a keyboard shortcut.

Nothing there for just the shift key. Even tried Restore Defaults but no change.

Actually I've just realized it's tiling all open windows, as F9 does. Does that help? And I've just also figured out that shift tiles, then shift again plus what I want to do, such as ?, actually does it.

Tried resetting the PRAM, but no change. I'm on a MacBook, OS X 10.5.8.

Well I checked Exposé and there were no changes there, and I didn't make any, but all of a sudden things are back to normal! Woo Hoo! Hold thumbs that the gremlin doesn't come back again...

Thanks so much for your help, Satcomer!
