    ShowDesktop - (CF add-on to switch to Desktop)

    Here is a script I put together to switch to Desktop from CF. Icon included.

    1)Simply add as Application, with NO GUI flag. Call the app 'DESKTOP'
    2) Put the icon in your skin's ICONS folder.

    Very nice, just what I was looking for.

    One thing though. When I tried it the first time it grabbed my browser I had open in windows and not cf and it pulled it into cf and I wasn't able to close it.

    It just did it again.

    bland: Can you explain a little more? A screenshot would also help. I'd like to fix this.

    It seems to be a issue only with firefox. When I have firefox and cf open and I hit the desktop button it appears like cf tries to integrate firefox and I loose it on my taksbar. Let me see if I can get some screen shots.

    Here firefox and cf are both running



    When I hit the desktop button in cf firefox appears to get pulled into cf and is gone from the taskbar.



    it is unaccessable from firefox but when I hit the desktop button afterwords just before it minimizes you can see it is in fact there running in the background. This one was hard to time to get the capture.



    I blacked out part of my desktop in the pictures becuase I'm on a work comp.

    How did you set the DESKTOP app within CF? It needs to be set to NO GUI, and you need to put no name in the WINDOW NAME parameter. Look it up and see what you have.

    Runs perfect now. It seemed buggy the other way I had it.

    Thanks for your help and a great little add-on.

    This works great, thanks! Makes a huge improvement in CF. I don't hate it nearly as much now.
