Desk Topmost - Brings desktop to fore without collapsing everything else

Some folks, when they need to see their desktop and they have several windows open, minimize those open windows one by one. It's true, I've seen them do it. Those a bit more aware of keyboard shortcuts do a Ctrl-D. The problem with that has been that the command minimized everything, meaning you've got to restore everything, which is a royal ouch.

So check out Desk Topmost. From the website:

"We usually use the keyboard shortcut "Win+D" or press the "Show Desktop" button in the Quick Launch Bar to access desktop, but unfortunately it isn't very convenient: If you like to keep 20+ programs running at the same time (just like me), the progress will take a few seconds. What's worse, you can't come back to the previous window instantly after running a program or opening a document from the desktop, you have to look for it in the taskbar and your train of thought is often interrupted.

Desk Topmost solves this in a different way: It will let the desktop float on the top instead of minimizing all the windows. It's 100% clean and FREE!"
