    Is there a keystroke that can replace the "Show Desktop" shortcut on the quick launch bar? If not, is there a registry entry or something to create a keystroke?

    the post above is the best choice

    if you'd like to do it with one keystrok;

    cut and paste the following including quotes;

    "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Show Desktop.scf"

    make a desktop shortcut

    hit properties on the shortcut

    then go to the box that says shortcut

    then just hit any f key you don't use.

    that'll do it, but for this to work, you need to keep the shortcut on the desktop, so jsut make it transparent, and you're done

    Windows key + D is what I was looking for! And thanks for the registry entry dealer, that might come in handy for something else!

    Windows key + m works as well. Minimise all i think that one is.
