Hi, can anybody tell me how can I do in Mac Os X 10.2 the same feature as Wondows have: when you have many windows and program open, and you like to see the desktop, instead of closing windows or minimizing them, press a button and see the entire desktop. Many Thanks. Juan<br><br>

Well, I know to hide all the other apps and stuff, you would just click on the 'Happy Mac' face in the dock, and then go up to 'Finder' on the menu bar on top, and just select 'Hide Others'...<br><br>There's this program too, but I think it's just a shortcut to the process I just mentioned...<br><br><br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a </font color=red> <br>

Thanks to all for the help, but no one of the solutions still satisfied me. The idea is to press a button on the dock and all the apps, hide. DaddyMac posted an app but the link is broked and I cannot find the Company's website. Anyway my friends, thanks for your time. Cheers from Barcelona. And if you know something, please tell.<br><br><br>

Ok try..<br>Keyboard Maestro<br>HotApp<br>Youpi Key<br>All of these apps will hide all by a user defined keystroke, such as using one of the Fkeys.<br><br>

No sé si funcionará en X, pero con el 9 sí: alt + click en el escritorio. Para volver al programa: manzana + tab.<br><br>

I have something called SHOW DESKTOP that does exactly that. I found it at Versiontracker or MacUpdate. Have to install that on my new dualie and the new 12" AlBook come to think of it. Very handy. Free too as I recall. I currently only have it on my old iBook.
