As per design, there should be no "show desktop" button. But you can achieve the same effect by the key combination Ctrl+Alt+D

What kind of design is that? To confuse users?

Why Ctrl+Alt+D? How intuitive is Ctrl+Alt+D? Maybe we'll design "minimize window" to be under, say, Ctrl+Alt+I and maximize under Alt+Shift+B to be more user friendly? Crazy, but if the point is to scare the users off - congratulations on good design.
