Windows 7: use aero peek to replace win+d

use aero peek to replace win+d

Hi everyone
I wonder if it was possible to use aero peek to replace win+d (mouse over the right-low corner to minimize all windows, and then mouse over it to show them again). it would be just like replacing the click on "show desktop" with a mouse gesture. actually aero peek is working fine but i don't see the point in just showing the desktop, it's useless.
Thanks for your help

I don't know about replacing it but if you want to use Aero Peek, you can use the Windows Key + Space.

no i don't want to use aero peek, that's the point of my message. i want that when the mouse is over the right-low corner > hide all windows ; when the mouse is on that corner again > show all windows. like win+d

i don't think i'm understood. i know if i click on "show desktop" button, it will hide all windows then if i reclick it will show them again (again like win+d). what i would like to do is not click, just put the mouse in the lower-right corner to do that.

I see what you're saying and I haven't been able to find a way to do that yet. You just want to hover over that button for Aero Peek but instead of just peeking, you want it to do "Show Desktop" just by hovering, no clicking. Maybe a third-party tool for mouse gestures might do it.

i''m not a fan of mouse hovering.

I accomplish this same objective with:
WIN M key combo to hide all and
WIN Shift M key combo to show again.

I've never heard of a 'mouse hover' to institute an instruction. It could be there is one, but still, never seen or heard of one.

I'm not sure if its possible to do what you want, but maybe you can try with mouse gestures.

You can send key combinations based on the gesture.
