    Preview Desktop not working?

    Hello all...

    I see there's an option "Preview Desktop" checked on the bottom right little bar on my taskbar, and I read somewhere that if you hover your mouse over that bar, you can "preview" the desktop without actually showing it (minimizing all windows). This doesn't work on my Windows 7 Installation. Is it another locked featured? Has anyone seen it working? Does it have anything to do with aero peek? what is aero peek by the way? is it the thumbnail preview when we hover over the open programs on the taskbar?

    Thank you all.

    Hello Limneos,

    So far that option is not working yet in Windows 7. It probably will be in the next build or two though.

    So far the only option is to click on the button to use it as Show Desktop.
