Creating a Show Desktop Script for keyboard Hotkey.
(firstly i wasnt too sure where to put this post, so if a moderators reading this - feel free to move it.)
Okay so ive just got a Logitech Cordless Desktop EX110, and the keyboard (like most moderately priced keyboards) has numerous 'hot-keys' (like music controls, email button, internet button, calc button etc.)
On the side of my keyboard is two hot keys, a 'back' button and a 'close window' button. Now in the Logitech SetPoint software it is possible to customize this buttons function. So i want to make it a 'show desktop' button.
Here's the problem, the SetPoint software is a bit restricted and gives me these (function) choices:
So heres my first question: Are there any OTHER keyboard shortcuts to show the desktop? Can i make a new keyboard shortcut?
But before i started asking that question i thought well ill try 'Open Program'. Found on the Microsoft website the script for Show Dekstop.scf, got that all ready. Targeted the file in SetPoint, no it doesnt work - SetPoint's 'Open Program' only works with executables (exe).
So i tried, open file - with the same file, nope - the computer does nothing when that happens.
So let me summarise:

You could download or create the "Show Desktop" shortcut from the link below, then save it somewhere and assign the keyboard hot-key button to open it when pressed.
Hope this helps,
