Magic Boss Key is a handy software for Windows that lets you hide programs, active browser, open folders, applications etc. with a simple hotkey. You can hide all active windows that are currently opened on your computer and can restore them to as it is state. Along with this, you can even hide the desktop icons and taskbar too. This software is useful in case you have opened applications (such as games or social networking websites) on your office PC that are unrelated to your work. You can hide all those stuff quickly on the sudden arrival of your boss with a single hotkey.
Only meaningful and work related tasks will be shown on your desktop screen using Magic Boss Key. You can use this software free of cost on Windows.
See the below screenshot showing you the interface of this program. Here you will find all of the active windows. And newly opened windows will come after refreshing the window of this program. You can select those applications or programs which you don’t want to hide. And all of the unchecked programs will hide upon pressing the hotkey.
Press the hotkey and only selected programs will be visible on your desktop screen. The default hotkey is: Left mouse button+right mouse button. And to make all your programs visible again, you need to press the same hotkey.
In order to change the hotkey and other settings of this software, you can access Options. Using Options you can use the other hotkey (F12) and can enable/disable hide desktop icons and taskbar option easily.
Note: The default hotkey (left mouse click+right mouse click) didn’t work in my case while I tried to restore hidden items. So you can use the Esc key to close the software if same thing happens with you. And while changing the hotkey, you need to restart this software to make changes take effect.
