Cant enable Show desktop

Show desktop suddenly stopped working.

I can only enable peek at desktop.



I have enabled Desktop composition, Animations in the taskbar and Start menu, Aero peek.

First of all, right click on the taskbar > select properties in the context menu . In the resulting taskbar and startmenu properties window, there is a checkbox "use aero peek to preview the desktop" at the most bottom item. Make it sure that this button is checked, and post back .

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and see if it works or not .
