Command M no longer adds to Render Queue

I recently upgraded from CS5 to CS5.5 and just discovered that hitting Command M minimizes the window instead of adding the composition to the Render Queue, does anyone know how to remap the keys to that instead?

Thanks in advance.

You must be working on a laptop. Try Command + Control + M.

Or you can use this script to remap keys:

Nope, I had Use system shortcuts enabled, Todd Kopriva posted the solution in an Adobe forum a few minutes ago.

Thank you very much for taking the time, though, I really appreciate it.

Can you post the solution, so if somebody else searches for it they will find it.

Sure, just go into AE's general preferences and deselect Use System Shortcuts.
Once again thanks to Todd Kopriva for this.

[David Cabestany] "I had Use system shortcuts enabled"

This is a Mac-specific issue. The shortcut you were using, Cmd-M (for Make movie, recently redirected to Add to Render Queue) is the Mac shortcut to minimize a window to the doc. The Replace Footage command is similarly affected, since its default key binding of Cmd-H conflicts with the Mac system shortcut for hiding the application.

In both cases, if "Use system shortcuts" is enabled, adding the Control key to the AE shortcut (Ctrl-Cmd-M for Make Movie and Ctrl-Cmd-H for Replace Footage) will work.

For Make Movie specifically, you could also use the traditional shortcut Cmd-Shift-/ to add to the render queue.
