Tested on Windows 7 x64 - managed to throw together a script with an excellent fade effect, icons show when you Win+D, responds to keyboard activity (press letter to select icons, even if faded), however icons don't respond to the first action if it's a left click - which I don't really mind; wouldn't want to be accidentally moving my carefully arranged icons around, lol. (right click works on first click). Taskbar does not activate icons.

Excuse the enthusiasm :lol: been trying to chuck this in my idle time for a while now.
