A lightweight, yet useful application that helps you enable the "Show Desktop" taskbar button in newer Windows operating systems

editor's review




The “Show Desktop” taskbar button was a handy feature specific to the Windows XP operating system helping people quickly access their files. Sadly, the button has been removed, or better said, relocated and reshaped on newer Windows operating systems, due to the fact that pressing the lower right corner of your screen will display your desktop screen.

Thanks to certain applications, such as Lifsoft ShowDesktop can bring back a small part of Windows XP’s nostalgia, by enabling the “Show Desktop” taskbar button on newer operating systems, such as Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1.

Besides, the program can bring back a little nostalgia, by re-enabling one of the functions specific to the Windows XP operating system.
