View Full Version : Desktop shortcut?

24th July 2009, 12:12 PM
Hi guys,

I have searched endlessly on the forum and google yet can't find my answer.

Is there a quick keyboard or mouse shortcut to the desktop?

Like on PC you have the "Show Desktop" icon in the taskbar?

At the moment I am minimising all my windows just so I can view a downloaded file on the desktop.

Surely there has to be a quicker way!!!

command-F3. It's the Expose key.

You can also set a hot corner to expose the desktop.

Very easy.
