Published February 5, 2015 by Admin

The desktop peek function is a very useful feature that you can use to preview your desktop temporarily. This feature is on the end of the taskbar. You can use it by just moving your cursor to that place to view the desktop temporarily. If you move the cursor away from that icon, all windows which you just open will show up again. But by default, this function is disabled from Windows 8. How to enable it again? Read the following guide to enable the desktop peek function.
