Step 3: Note that there is no space between , and 3 in the third line of the code.
Step 4: Go to file menu and click on save as. And save the file as Show Desktop.scf and save it on your desktop.
This icon can also be pinned to the taskbar by just dragging in the icon to the taskbar. Now when ever you want to show the desktop then you can just go to start and click on the show desktop. This can always be handy and it can be a real good help.
