Ask Amy: Windows 7 Minimize Tip

Ever want to Minimize all Open Windows at Once? Here’s how…

By Amy Pearson

In Windows 7 it is very easy to minimize all open Windows at once. Simply click once on the Show Desktop button at the far right end of the taskbar. All open Windows are minimized and the Desktop is displayed. At this point you can click on the Taskbar to display any window you want to work with or if you want to return all the windows to their open position, click on the Show Desktop button a second time.
