    I miss the button (Win7) that took you to the workspace

    Hi Guys,

    I miss the lower right side buttom on Win7 that took you right to the workspace window.
    On Win8.1, when we look for the Workspace, the Charms Bar covers it most of the time.
    Are there any such similar replacement buttons for Win8.1?
    Any help is welcome.

    Right-click on Taskbar and select Properties. There is a checkbox on the Taskbar tab to enable that feature.
