No More Jumping Windows on your Mac – Turn off Click Wallpaper to Show Desktop

One of my favorite features introduced with macOS Sonoma has now become one of my least favorite. Which feature? Clicking on the Wallpaper to show your Desktop. Initially, I thought this would be great for everyone. However, after a few months of use, I have changed my mind. Not only do I dislike it, but I have also turned it off and reverted back to using the trusty Hot Corner trick to show my Desktop. In this video, I will show you how to disable this feature and set up a Hot Corner to show your Desktop. If you are wondering why your windows are moving out of the way and want to turn that off, watch this video.
