Windows 7: Minimize all windows button.

Minimize all windows button.

Seriously, why did they not bring back that button?

I found a way to fix one myself somewhere but something was wrong with it...I think I had to do it again every time I restarted my computer or something.

Is there a fix or something?

It's still there pal. To the right of the time there is an option to "show desktop" if you hold your mouse over it without clicking you can "peek" your desktop if you click on it you will minimise all the open windows
