About the "show desktop" -button in gnome


The show desktop -button is really handy, but I'm using a laptop atm, and the mouse isn't that good and it isn't so handy either. So I was wandering if I could set a quick-key to the button (like windows has <windows button> and D). If there is some way, please let me know!

Thanks, Raaste

I agree that, especially on a laptop, that kind of shortcut system would be really handy, but I didn't know the answer. So I googled. First on Googles returns.

Thanks both of you. I only just learned that <windows>+D shows the windows desktop.
