Focus Your Active Window, Hide Background Distractions With Win+Home

The decluttering Win + Home shortcut is also useful for times when you want to check something that's on your desktop, like a widget or an image you've overlapped on top of your wallpaper.If you don't have Windows 7, you can enable the shortcut with this handy executable we released, Windows 7 Shortcuts, from Lifehacker reader Rupert.

    Win-HOME doesn't do anything on mine.. Win7x64...

      Doesn't do anything for me either (Win7 32bit), Win+Space hides all windows which is arguably more useful.

      I haven't installed SP1 yet though, maybe its in there.
