Show Desktop 1.042

Version 1.042

Requires .NET Framework 3.5

Compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7

'Show Desktop' is a small standalone application that creates a small rectangular button at the right side of the user's task bar, next to the clock, which, when clicked, allows the user to minimize all open windows or temporarily make them transparent so the user can "peek" at the desktop.

'Show Desktop' also allows the user to change the application's settings to their liking, so they can make the button smaller or even invisible, or so they can change how windows are minimized.

'Show Desktop' even gives the user to easily shutdown, restart, standby, hibernate... their computer straight from the right click menu accessible from the button itself.

Added Features
- Aero Peek
- Exclusion List (NEW)
- A new, more user friendly, settings window.
- Ability to shutdown, restart... computer
- The rightclick menu is accessible right from the button
- Tool-tip that looks like the one in Windows 7
- Option to change the button's transparency
- Option to change Aero Peek transparency
- Option to enable/disable Aero Peek
- Multi-monitor support.

- Button now works with hidden taskbar.
- Button now stays with the taskbar when the screen resolution is changed.
- Bug fixed where the button goes behind the taskbar.
- Windows moving to the left after Aero Peeking.
- Button staying above fullscreen windows.

Show Desktop XP is exclusive to Aero Xtreme 7 XP . You may NOT package it with a theme or any other work without the permission of me and *InTime69. If you want to feature it, just simply post a link to this page.
