Show Desktop Shortcut in Window 7

ms window 7, ms win 7, win 7I notice Show Desktop shortcut is missing when Window 7 started. After 15 min of clicking, i found the Show Desktop shortcut in Window 7. The Show Desktop Shortcut in Window 7 is located at the bottom right of the screen!


  • Just move your mouse to the bottom right, there is a little small button.
    show desktop shortcut, show desktop shortcut win 7, show desktop shortcut window 7
  • That is the Show Desktop button, of course click on it will show the desktop. Funny thing is, if you stop your mouse pointer on top of the button for 2 sec, it will transparent all the application window and let you see thru the desktop. This is a new features call “Aero Peek”

The alternative way to have Show Desktop Shortcut effect is using keyboard shortcut.
The shortcut key for show desktop is still the same:-
Press Window + D
