DIY: Show Desktop Icon

It happens, sometimes, I don’t know how.. But happens.. Some people manage to delete their “SHOW DESKTOP” icon.

You know that little button, next to the start button in the quicklaunch menu. If you press it, all windows minimize.

Here is how to put it back.

Open notepad. Put following in the document exactly as below…


Save the document as “Show desktop.scf” on your desktop.

The icon will look like a large “show desktop” icon. Drag it back to the quicklaunch bar (you may need to unlock it first).

Off you go.. all is well again.
