How do I get a desktop icon on my task bar with XP (can't seem to do it).
thanks in advance
IconFile=C:\Windows\Shell Icons\Desktop XP.ico
put it in a text file and name it "show desktop.scf"
The default would be
unlikely that Engineer has the same customized icons than you, sboulema
But you can indeed put every icon in there that you like.
Save it as desktop.scf to C:\Documents and Settings\ username\ Application Data\ Microsoft\ Internet Explorer\ Quick Launch
or save it to desktop and drag it to your Quick Launchbar.
Windows key + D is a good alternative btw.
Windows Key + D
Windows key + D works way faster then putting an icon on the task bar thanks YoYo!
Is there a list of other Windows Key shortcuts for XP??
Win open Start Menu
Win+break System Properties Dialogue
Win+M Minimizes all open windows
Win+D Toggles between desktop and windows
Win+L Locks the computer (or shows the welcome screen)
Win+U Utility Manager
To see all shortcuts press Windows key+R and type C:\Windows\Help\keyshort.chm
