Windows 7: Speech Recognition New Features - Show taskbar

Speech Recognition New Features - Show taskbar

If there is currently a way to "show taskbar" with a Voice Recognition command, I have missed it. At least it isn't prominently featured in any of the documentation, if it does exist. I would like to be able to show the (hidden) taskbar, and to proceed to do the usual actions, such as restoring a minimized task. Any general discussion of this topic would also be read with interest.

I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 and I tried to unhide the taskbar by voice the only way I can get it to come up was to say "start menu" but that takes the focus away from any window that is open either maximize or minimize the only way I can get control of any window was with a mouseclick by voice.
