Windows 7: Anyone know how to remove the desktop icon from the win+tab shortcut?

Anyone know how to remove the desktop icon from the win+tab shortcut?

I've seen solutions posted all over for removing the desktop icon from appearing in windows 7 when you press alt+tab, but this does not seem to apply the change to the win+tab shortcut.

I added a DWORD called 'AltTabSettings' in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer and set the value to 1, is this supposed to work for both alt+tab and win+tab?

If not, anyone know how to do this? It would make win+tab (which is much prettier of an effect than alt+tab) much more effective.

Hello Bob, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Unfortunately, that will only work with the ALT+Tab option. I'm not sure how to do this with WIN+Tab, if possible.

ALT+TAB - Use Classic Icons or Default Thumbnails
