    Show desktop

    Came across this accidentally just now. If you move your cursor to the extreme bottom right of your screen, at the end of the toolbar, a message pops up saying Show Desktop. If you keep the cursor there for a couple of seconds more any open windows will be minimised. Moving the cursor away from this area will return things as they were.

    Right click on it to choose between "peek" (what you describe) and an immediate "show desktop"

    Microsoft's Help and Support found in the Start Menu has a section for what is new in Windows 7, this and many other features are presented with videos.
