Excellent feature that is not present natively on the Mac. With the new upgrade now it works flawlessly.

Does not do the job i expected. I have several documents including all my firewired hard drives on the desktop. Well they were all still there when I called on Show Desktop to clear the desktop.

Good, but should and needs a short cut. I like Expose but it doesnt hide the apps. But this does, but needs to be done in a more elegant way. I dont want it in my menubar or dock. I want a teackpad gesture or a shortcut.

great little app. been using it for a good while now. note, i'm more of a mouse user than keyboard, hence, can't be bothered to use command+option+desktop feature.

Show Desktop is the Jaguar's Expose. For us Jaguar users, this is an Expose equivalent. One click of the menu bar icon and you get your desktop. Unbeatable. Thanks.
