Has the new Windows cancelled this function? Mr. Zhang was a little unhappy...

Place the mouse on it. See what happens? It turns out all of the opened windows have turned into transparent.

Click the "Show Desktop" little long bar, all of the windows disappear, and there is fish leisurely swimming in the boundless blue sea.
