    Alt-Tab To Desktop


    Is it possible to add desktop back to the alt-tab menu?

    Alt+Tab works but on mine only until I release the Alt key. There is a Peek/Show Desktop at the far right end of the Taskbar [beyond the clock] similar to Win7 where holding the mouse over it shows the Desktop but clicking on it minimizes everything and clicking again restores it.

    Or you can press WIN+D together.

    I know I always forget about that. Just wondering if it was possible, It was in windows 8 and 8.1.

    Yes I'm aware of this. Don't think it's possible.

    There are ways to make shortcuts to show desktop, but there is already win+D so nothing new is achieved by this.
