    Show desktop?

    XP had a 1 click show desktop icon, lower left, and W7 had it lower right. Any such in W10? The 1 click thingy was very convenient.

    Follow up...I see the option, but it's not a 1 click icon.

    Put your mouse pointer in the bottom right corner of your screen; hover to peek or click to switch. (You can also right-click anywhere to right of date/time for a Show/Peek menu).

    Or use Win+D keys to toggle on/off: How to add a "Show Desktop" icon to the taskbar in Windows 10 (or 7, 8)

    Another option is to add the old familiar Quick Launch toolbar in the lower left on the taskbar, and it will have a Show Desktop button.

    Very simply, it's @ the right end of the Taskbar OR Rt Clk Win logo OR Win+X and click on Desktop.
