This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I can't solve your issue, but just suggest you to use ctrl+alt+d to minimize all windows and showing your desktop. Hope this helps. – Elvis D. Aug 23 '12 at 22:54

The location of "Show Desktop" icon has been a controversial one.
Current scenario:
"Show Desktop" icon can be enabled by using myunity or ccsm and is placed at the bottom of the launcher.You can NOT change it's position in the launcher.
According to the progress on this bug,we will soon see a "mini-app" that will do the same function as "Show Desktop",but it's position in the Launcher can be changed by dragging and dropping.

For Ubuntu 12.10

This issue has been resolved in Ubuntu 12.10, where you can change the position of "Show Desktop" icon by dragging and dropping.
