    Is it possible to move the "show desktop" icon from the right side of the screen to the left where it used to be? I have been unable to find an asnwer to this. Thanks.

    Hi yeldarbgr and Welcome to the Forums,

    The button you refer to is the Aero Peep button and as far as I am aware it cannot be moved from its position without serious editing of system files.

    See if this little tutorial I found helps you to add the old fashioned "Show Desktop" button.

    You can pin an icon for this purpose:

    1. Copy to notepad and save as Show desktop.scf:

    [Shell]
    Command=2
    IconFile=explorer.exe,3
    [Taskbar]
    Command=ToggleDesktop




    2. Pin an icon to your taskbar, for example notepad.

    3. Right-click the pinned icon >> properties >> in the target box type the path to Show desktop.scf >> e.g. C:\Users\Show desktop.scf
