How can I make a show desktop icon like you have for the pc?
You can't, you use Exposé.
Exposé is much quicker and easier. One press of a button clears your desktop and then brings it back again.
The simple answer: You don't need one. Invoking Expose's Show Desktop feature is sufficient for most people - you can set it to a key, a hot corner, or both.
The complex answer: If you REALLY want an icon for this I suppose you could write a little shell script that opens the Expose application with some argument to make it show the desktop, then give it a suitable icon, make it executable, and drop it in the Dock.
I have expose - show desktop mapped to my middle mouse button(scroll wheel).
I have fn now for expose
But I had a show desktop icon before in my dock that I made last year.I just reinstalled everyhting And I dont remember how I made it
