    Welcome to the forums lionheart222. :) See how this goes.

    Create a file called "Show Desktop.txt" in the following location

    "C:\Documents and Settings\username\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.***
