windows goes transparent


New Member
When I move my curser past the bottom right corner of my monitor screen all programs go transparent.

When this happens (transparent) I can see my desktop and transparent shadow boxes where open programs were.

When I move the curser back onto the screen everything goes back to normal.

I've attached pictures of my screens before and after.

Is this normal? Is this a software problem? Is this something I can fix?

It's normal. It's also a special button called "Show Desktop". If you click it it will minimize all open windows.

Thanks for the quick reply and the expertise - very much appreciated.

Can this be turned off?

It's a royal pain because when I need to use the top of my desk, I push the mouse in that direction automatically to get it out of the way.
