I’m relatively new to Mac OS X and have been struggling to find out how to quickly “Show the Desktop” to see all the icons I have in there.
I have been used to clicking that little “Show Desktop” icon on the bottom left of the screen in Windows and was looking for an equivalent on my Mac.
Fortunately, there is! But it’s not an icon that you would click but some keyboard shortcuts you need to type. For me pressing fn F10 did the trick.
