To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar:

Use a text editor to create a *text* file with the following lines:


Save this new file as a Show Desktop.scf in the Windows\System
or Winnt\System32 folder.

Quit Notepad.

Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click the Show Desktop.scf
file, and then click Create Shortcut.

Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In Windows 95/98:
Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

In Windows 2000/XP, copy the shortcut to
this folder: Winnt\System32

Rename the shortcut to Desktop.

The Show Desktop icon automatically appears on the Quick Launch toolbar.
