    Shortcut/icon Icon button to toggle Desktop.


    I'd like to pin an icon on my taskbar to toggle the desktop. I know CTRL+D does it, but is there a Win 10 icon for that? If not, can I create an icon that executes the CTRL+D command, and pin that to the task bar?

    You many already know this, but there's already that button to the far right of systray icons that toggles the desktop to show or peek. But I could easily see the advantage of having a more accessible icon at the bottom.

    Thanks. That's what I want. Just wish I could make it bigger and move it to the Left side.
