Show Desktop Icon lost

  1. Apr 11, 2005 #1
    Hi friends

    I have this tiny little problem on my Windows 2000 box: the show desktop icon has disappeared/accidentally been deleted from the quicklaunch bar (the taskbar). If you have any idea as to how I can get it back please do let me know.

    Thanks and cheers

    I found mine by looking here (make sure you can view all ile types):

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    The Administrator folder is one of the options because of my work's network set up. You "should" have an administrator folder if I remember correctly.

    I just use windows key + m. Windows key usualy by ctrl on most new keyboards. Fast and quick.
