Hi geeks,

I have Windows 7, and whenever I hover over the 'Show Desktop' button it's supposed to do it's Aero peek thingy and SADLY, it doesnt :(
I have done everything I can to TRY and fix it but, I cannot succeed :(
I've tried disabling Aero Peek, then enabling it and I've tried the 'Aero troubleshooter' option and still, it continues to be stubborn and NOT work.

If you had tried everything possible and it fails to work then I would recommend you to check in a new admin user account in your computer.

In Control Panel > Performance Information and Tools > Adjust Visual Effects, make sure the following are enabled
Enable desktop composition
Use visual styles on windows and buttons.
Then try one more time.
