I have a dual display setup. Works perfect.

You know you are a redneck if you bounce your mouse off the monitor and break it

Sort of

Based upon Antman's brilliant lead to google it, I found you can disable the aero peek part of the show desktop button by editing the registry DisablePreviewDesktop entry in: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Advanced from value 0 to 1. So reps to Antman for getting me to google, I just changed to ff, now I'm googling, too. Now, If I could just get the button to the middle of the taskbar, maybe I'll google it!

If you were to use Google to search for the exact phrase I provided, your first hit would take you to an excellent tutorial. Posting a link to that tutorial would violate SevenForums policy. The tutorial itself is a guide to resurrect the defunct Show Desktop function found in earlier versions of Windows.

As for getting the referenced icon to appear in the center of the taskbar, Google Seven Forums center taskbar icons.

Google twit.

I don't use it i prefere use quick launch like Vista /XP

thanks
I,jmacie did not want instructions on recreating the old quick launch show desktop icon, or centering it . I wanted to move the aero peek button to the middle of the screen. pc84 started this thread, and after 79 views and no comments, I responded by saying I'd like to move desktop peek button, to bump the original post. Now after figuring out a hint for pc84's problem, and thanking Antman for reminding us all to google it, I get the google twit, well no response for a clarification from Antman, so google sanctimony

The act of googling twit is something only a twit would do - or such was my operational theory. Too often, you force me to re-evaluate.

It is possible that I misunderstood the poster's humor. The assumption of familiarity common to a younger generation is one aspect of netiquette that I have yet to grok.
