I found an error in KB 190355 entitled "How to Re-create the Show Desktop Icon on Quick Launch Toolbar" ( see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;190355 ). However, when I attempt to "provide feedback" for that page, I get a screen that says "Sorry, the page you requested is not available". (I thought my message might be greater than 255 characters, but it's not.)

The error is as follows: KB 190355 -- Step 5 specifies an incorrect location for the shortcut (at least for Windows 2000). The shortcut should be created in C:\Documents and Settings\<YOURNAME>\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

Step 5 in the current KB article incorrectly states that the shortcut should be created in Winnt\System32 , and that's wrong (at least for Windows 2000 it's wrong).

Can some kind soul please forward this info to MS?

True enough, which makes Step 5 completely wrong since it very clearly says:

"5. ... In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000, copy the shortcut to this folder:
Winnt\System32 "

Anyway, I think you had your tongue at least partly in cheek when you posted your reply ;)
