Hi,

At one time I had the desktop icon showing in the taskbar. With just
one click, I could see the desktop. Can’t get it to show again.
Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe

Hi Joe,

Open notepad to a blank text document and paste the following into it:

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

Save the file as "Show Desktop.scf" and drag it to the Quick Launch
Toolbar.

Thanks for the info, but I prefer to fix this issue using Windows.

No matter what method you use to replace the Show Desktop icon, the
result is the same.

What method do you use then?
