One click to show desktop

Does anyone kniow of a utility that would allow you to click once anywhere on the desktop and this would in effect do the same as 'Show desktop'.

So if I have three windows open and click in a small space of viewable desktop, then the whole desktop appears and all the icons are minimised? Almost as if the Desktop was an active full-screen window that can become the prominent window when clicked upon...

I know about the 'show desktop' shortcut but I want to access this by clicking anywhere on the desktop!

  1. Click on the small bar on the right side of the clock in the task bar.
  2. Hi,
    Thanks for the response. I am aware of that button, but I was hoping there was a utility whereby you can click anywhere on the desktop to minimise all other windows - meaning I don't have to click in the very bottom right of the screen each time. I have several monitors and the mouse pointer bounces onto the other screens very easily making it harder to always hit the button easily.
    Thanks
  3. Upgrade to win8 and get a taskbar on every screen or try this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/190355/en-us

    And it would still be great to be able to click anywhere you can see the desktop to bring it to the foreground...
