Destop Icon has disappeared

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Neville Denetto, Sep 13, 2005.

  1. I used to have a Desktop icon on the Quick Launch bar. For some unknown
    reason, it has disappeared. In its place I have a 'basic' microsoft icon.

    The properties info tells me that it would look for Desktop.scf which
    should be in:
    C:\Documents and Settings\nd\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet
    Explorer\Quick Launch\Show Desktop.scf
    It is not there, or anywhere on my computer.

    Could someone please help me.



    Please help!

    Right click a blank spot on the desktop, create a new text file called "Desktop.txt"

    Copy & paste the below text to the file, rename the file to "Desktop.scf", then drag the file to
    the taskbar.

    Keyboard shortcut:
    Press the Windows logo key (next to your Alt key), along with "M"
    (Also works with the "d" key)

  3. Thank you . I now have the icon back again on my task bar. Also, the
    shortcut keys work great.
