Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This simple tool quickly hides all open windows with a click, but could use a hot-key option. Boss Button's interface is a simple icon on the tool tray. No need for a manual as this utility has but a single function.

Click the Boss Button and the app hides all windows. Click it again and they return. The problem is some of our testers found it very difficult to quickly move their mouse to the tiny button and click it. More useful would be an option to press a hot key to hide the windows.

For such a simple app, Boss Button runs with almost as much memory as Windows Explorer. The seven-day trial requires testers give extensive personal information. Seven days still gives users plenty of time to find if they can click the Boss Button faster than the boss can see their desktop.
