Try the amazing Option key
Authored by: luvosx on Sep 11, '09 11:00:04AM

Oh, I just accidentally stumbled on to <cmd><option>Click on desktop. This hides all windows as if you hit hide on each window. Very nifty use of suddenly hiding all windows when someone walks by or comes by your desk.
Just <Option>Click on desktop hides current window only.

Duh, just saw the other comment earlier. Guess the newb still has a lot to learn :)

Like meanwhile you've probably already read in the other comments: this will keep any Finder window open. (You're actually switching to Finder by clicking on the desktop.)

I guess that Exposť's Show Desktop (F11 or Command-F3) is easier used as your boss key then, though that will leave some borders visible.
