I've programmed the back button on my mouse to execute the shortcut Win+D (Show desktop).
But when I press it, its just opening the Start menu and typing D into any program that was active (ie. Notepad++)

Is there something I'm missing?

NOTE: The Network Folders (forward button) just executes a shortcut for a desktop shortcut which is just a folder with a bunch of shared folder shortcuts. It's shortcut Ctrl+Alt+S works perfectly.

Try binding the key to start a file. Save the following in a file called "showDesktop.scf"

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop
