right click on your taskbar
toolbars menu
check any item you want to appear, or choose new toolbar.

right click on your taskbar
toolbars menu
check any item you want to appear, I selected Desktop and closed out the drop down menu, but nothing happened except the fact that it put a checkmark next to desktop

For anyone else, there is a much simpler method...create a shortcut with this target;

"C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Show Desktop.scf"


drag it into the task bar, delete the shortcut
