Windows – New Show Desktop option

When you have used Windows XP a lot where you have your “Show Desktop” icon on the system tray, when clicked it minimizes all the windows and take you to the Desktop. You can also do this by right click on the system tray and select “Show the desktop”. These options are also available in Windows 7; apart from these the new way to do this is by,

1. Just mouse over towards the extreme right on your system tray, where you can see a vertical bar. (Shown in the screenshot below) image

2. When you point your mouse over the bar as shown above, you can see your desktop without clicking anything.

3. Also when you take out your mouse pointer from this you will be shown all the other windows which were opened already.

4. You can also click on this vertical bar which will minimize all the windows and shows your desktop.
