The taskbar on your Windows 7 (or newer) computer enables you to momentarily view your desktop without having to minimize or close all your open programs.

  • To view your desktop, hover your mouse over the Aero Peek button in the bottom right corner of your screen. Minimize all programs by clicking the Aero Peek button. Click again to return to the previous window.  
  • The keyboard shortcut to momentarily view your desktop is Windows key + space bar.                         
  • To disable Aero Peek, right-click and uncheck Peek at desktop.
