You might be able to get around this using AutoHotKey. It's been a while since I played with it, but here's a script I concocted to enable double-clicking on the destkop background to give the Winkey->Tab action:
; adapted from http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/44915/how-to-change-window-transparency-in-windows-7/

; ^ = ctrl
; ! = alt
; + = shift
; ~ = just pass the keystroke on to other programs
; # = Windows key

~LButton::
   if (A_PriorHotKey = A_ThisHotKey) and (A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 500)
   {
      if _DesktopBlankSpot()
        Send #{Tab}
   }
return

_DesktopBlankSpot()
{
  LVM_GETSELECTEDCOUNT := 0x1000 + 50
  WinGetClass, Class, A
  if (Class != "WorkerW") and (Class != "Progman")
    return false
  handle := WinExist("A")
  handle := DllCall("GetWindow","Ptr",handle,"Uint",5,"Ptr")
  if (! handle)
    return false
  handle := DllCall("GetWindow","Ptr",handle,"Uint",5,"Ptr")
  if (! handle)
    return false
  SendMessage,%LVM_GETSELECTEDCOUNT%,0,0,,ahk_id %handle%
  return (! ErrorLevel) ; nothing selected = clicked on blank spot
}

If you go down that route, here's another one I made to simulate key presses when the mouse is over things in a planetarium program I used a lot in the past. I don't guarantee it is error free, but should get you started on the nomenclature used to handle 'Alt' and such. The '< h1 >'s should just be a "#" at the beginning of the line - CPs autochanger is messing that up.
