    this is TOTALLY ridiculous. the show desktop button is TINY. i've used it since windows 98 and prefer to have it centered on my taskbar somewhere. your alternative of pressing the 'windows' key + w or whatever it was, is stupid too. i play games. the win key is in a horrible spot for that, you're in the middle of a game and u accidently press your win key and you're thrown out to your desktop. i simply remove them from my keyboard. please bring the option to have a BIG SHOW DESKTOP BUTTON back. if you dont....well..."i guess i could burn down the building" =p

    Make the desktop peak button by notifications a little bigger?


    Hi all!

    If there a way to make the button to peak at the desktop (to the right of the notification area) bigger? It seems like it's about 1/2 the size (or less?) than it was in Windows 7. Is there a way to make that bigger again? I've currently got a "Show Desktop" button on the taskbar, but I'd rather just use the one by the notification area.

    Thanks!

    'Show desktop' button too small

    I know the question has been asked before about making the 'show desktop' button bigger on Windows 10 and I know it can't be made bigger. It's like that "by design".

    My question is what design is that? It's a hideous design. I run dual monitors at home and the taskbar is on my left monitor, meaning the button is near impossible to hit. Why is it that so many features that were perfect in Windows 7 were taken out or changed
    in Windows 10?

    Can you please implement some way to change it in some way. I know about the keyboard shortcut to show the desktop but I'd simply rather use the button.

    Allow users to rename desktops

    Just a suggestion to people who may be able to do something: In the new windows 10 update, Microsoft allowed you to have multiple desktops for doing different things at once, while staying organized. One nice touch to add would be to allow users to rename
    their desktops (one for GAMES, one for WORK, etc.) it's not a lifesaver but it would be useful for people who are not familiar with your layout or to keep even yourself a little more organized.
