    Peek to preview the desktop


    Have this checked to put at end of taskbar,but it is very small to use.Is there a way to make larger?. In windows7 this was not a problem. I mean this is like 1/16 wide.

    Just throw your cursor hard into the corner.

    I also had this problem, my Show Desktop button (or Peek to Preview) was barely inch wide and very difficult to use. I researched How to make the Show Desktop button larger but couldn't find any way to do this. But there was info on how to add a Show Desktop Icon to the task bar at:- https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html - I followed the instructions and now I have an Icon on the task bar and it is so easy to locate and use.
