Instantly Show The Desktop When Using The “Show Desktop” Bar In Your System Tray

Instantly Show Desktop Ever noticed that when you hover with the mouse over the system tray bar that shows the desktop that it will have a short delay? You can change this delay to 0!

Pro Tip: You should backup your registry first – better safe than sorry

1. Step Open the registry editor:

Regedit To Open Registry

2. Step Enter regedit into search bar, hit Enter

3. Step Now go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

4. Step In the right pane, right-click and create a new DWORD-32 bit key. Keep in mind, even if you are on a 64-bit system you have to create a 32-bit key.

Creating Dword 32 Bit

5. Step Enter DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime as the name of they key with the value “0” without quotes

6. Step If you want to test this right away, kill the process explorer.exe in your task manager via CTRL + ALT + DEL – after starting explorer.exe again you can see it works right away
