i am not sure if it is compatible with Win 8.1 but have you tried this app, "Show Desktop"? it has an option to toggle between two different ways of showing the desktop.


Thank you SO MUCH lanux128, i have tried and its working with win 8.1. it has this method of minimizing windows, that is exactly what i needed, thanks again for the suggestion. bless you.

Hi everyone, thanks for the interest you guys are showing.

@skwire: i only need minimize all functionality for the show desktop.

let me explain again, i m on windows 8.1 64 bit, there is a "Show Desktop" small transparent button in the system tray on full right side, what it does is from a layman pov is, it work like pressing "Win key + D", but i want it to do the functionality of "Win key + M".

"Win Key + M" only minimizes all the open windows. which shows my rainmeter customization and my docks on the desktop. but "Win key+ D" minimizes all the open windows and place desktop windows on the top of the stack, which hides my docks and some of my rainmeter customization.

if still confusing let me know and i will upload screenshot of my desktop tomorrow.


Nah bro, you understood exactly right, i need a solution for clicking "show desktop" with the mouse arrow. not the hotkey. i use show desktop way too much in daily use, so that is what i need.

Hi guys,

as most of you will be aware with the show desktop feature in the windows, which is in the system tray on bottom right of your screen.

I need a tweak or registry edit to make it do "Win + M" Minimize all Windows, instead of "Win + D" show desktop.

Reason is it hides my gadgets and docks, while Win + M keep those on the desktop and just minimizes the windows.

any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks, and sorry mods if i posted my first post in the wrong section. please move it to right section.
