Tip: Windows 7 – Show the Desktop

We’ve talked about Windows-Key tips before.  Windows +D shows your desktop.  The same key combination again returns your windows to their previous positions.  In the Information Technology field, a good computer tech will realized that some users, however, don’t like keyboard combinations.  For those users, Windows 7 conveniently provides another solution.

If you’re running Windows 7, the solution is easy.  Look to the bottom-right corner of your screen, by the task tray icons.  Just to the right of the clock and date, you’ll see a small rectangle separated from the rest:

Click the button once and you’ll return to your desktop, no matter how many application windows are currently open.  Click again, and you’re back where you started.
