    I don't use a custom theme. Aero and Aero Lite come with Win8.

    Good news, the problem fixed itself

    I know you wrote that it fixed itself, but I was wondering if you can expand on things you tried to solve it.

    I have this problem too. If I move my mouse pointer to the absolute bottom-right of the screen, the Show Desktop button is not clickable. If I move my mouse pointer up literally one pixel, the button becomes clickable.

    It's incredibly frustrating.

    It's simple. Just don't use Aero Lite.
