    How to hide all windows at once = show desktop with icons only?


    Assume I have multiple windows open (browser, WinExplorer, Word,...).

    Is there a way to hide all these windows at once to show only desktop, then double click on one of the icons on desktop to start another prgm and finally re-show the previously hidden windows again?
