is there a way to minimize all finder and program windows that may be up to only show the desktop background? A command like "Windows Key + D".
iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
there is no exact shortcut like that but there are a number of alternatives. commandoptionM will minimize all windows of the current app. command+H will hide (without minimizing) all windows of the current app and commandoptionH will hide all the apps besides the current one. there is also exposé which lets you make a number of useful shortcuts like one that shows desktop. lastly there are Spaces.
