mgiht not have to recreate it if it's still in the folder

create a shortcut with this...

create a shortcut with this target;

right click the desktop, hit new, hit shortcut
paste this into the target;

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

with the qoutes

drag that shortcut to the quick launch bar

also, once you start using windows key+d you'll never use the shortcut again...try that, you'll love it

hey!...new tweak!!!

after you create the desktop shortcut with the target I just gave you, right click while the shortcut is on your desktop

put your cursor in the "shortcut" key and hit "f8" if you don't use that f key for anything else

hit apply, hen all you have to do is hit f8 and you have your desktop!

I just tried that with f7...pretty cool, I turned a two key shortcut into a one key shortcut, I wonder if it's worth it
