    I recently deleted my shortcut on my quick launch to go back to my desktop and minimize all my windows. I was curious how can I make another one to do that? As this is really useful for me.


    Thank You,

    This probably says the same thing>

    Open notepad & create a file called "Show Desktop.txt" in the following location

    "C:\Documents and Settings\""YOU""\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch"

    Cut and paste the following into it:

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


    rename the file "Show Desktop.scf"

    ***I had to create this file then move it to the quick launch bar. It then showed up in the above mentioned folder.***
