Anywhere MX - click for Desktop

[ Edited ]

Want to setup Anywhere MX mouse to show/hide Desktop when I click on its #3 button, like it does when I click on the bottom of the middle button on my T400 mouse. 

 

Am running SetPoint software on a Windows 8 on a laptop.

Hi thewoodbutcher,

 

To assign show/hide desktop on one of the buttons of your Anywhere Mouse MX, try the following:

 

  1. Go to the following location and search for Show Desktop: C:\Users\>YOUR USER ACCOUNT>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch.
  2. Right click the Show Desktop icon and select Create a shortcut. Put the shortcut on your desktop.
  3. Right click the shortcut your created and click Properties.
  4. Under the general tab, put a set of keyboard combinations on the Shortcut key box (Example: Ctrl+Alt+D).
  5. Launch the Logitech Setpoint Software.
  6. Assign the keyboard combination (Example: Ctrl+Alt+D) to one of the buttons of the mouse as a keystroke assignment.

Re: Anywhere MX - click for Desktop

Thanx,

 

I've been  trying to find a single click way to "Show Desktop," but the mouse way remains too complicated for my simple mind to setup.  What I learned from a Google employee is to click on the keyboard's Window and D keys and it does what I need - it shows my desktop.  Now, if I could get my mouse to do that, I'd be happy.  If I can't, I'm happy that I know a 2-click method.
