Software tool to pin show desktop option to the task bar in windows 7

In Windows 7 the ‘Show Desktop’ option has moved to the far right corner of the screen. Clicking on it will let you preview your desktop. But, in earlier versions of Windows you can put this option to the left side of your taskbar; clicking on it will minimize all running programs to taskbar and show you the desktop.

However, if you still need this option in Windows 7, there is a freeware tool called Show Desktop (There are manual methods to do this, but required some skills) that will minimizes all open windows to display the desktop.

Show Desktop was created for Windows 7 but also works as a replacement for Windows Show Desktop icon in the taskbar on Windows 2000, XP and Vista also.

Usage: Just install the program and drag the ‘Show desktop’ icon the taskbar, that’s all.

Requirements: Windows 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7 (Works on both 32-bit & 64-bit operating systems). Download Show Desktop
