Quick Launch - Show Desktop Missing

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Weyoun the Dancing Borg, May 13, 2004.

  1. It was there a minute ago, and now it's just gone. I checked the
    recyclebin and my desktop in case I had moved it but I'm using the
    Windows XP Pro "Lock the Taskbar" feature so I don't think I could have
    dragged it anywhere. It's not on any of the menu's...

    And ideas how I create a new "Show the Desktop" button?

    TIA

    Look in:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Myname\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet
    Explorer\Quick Launch

    Drag the Quick Launch shortcut icon to where it used to be.

    well... that just links to the quicklaunch menu.

    Which has a missing icon.

    And the missing icon is not present in the directory where Quick Launch
    get's it's icons.

    that's why it's missing :)

    All you have to do is right click on your task bar, and Properties, then
    show Quick Launch.

    Take a notepad and save the following


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

    Save as Show desktop.scf
