Creating Show Desktop icon on quick launch bar in windows xp

Today i saw my show desktop icon was gone off my quick launch bar automatically. I looked around and came up with a simple solutions.

To re-create the Show desktop icon yourself, follow these steps:

Click Start, click Run, type notepad in the Open box, and then click OK.

  • Carefully copy and then paste the following text into the Notepad window:
          [Shell]
          Command=2
          IconFile=explorer.exe,3
          [Taskbar]
          Command=ToggleDesktop
    
  • On the File menu, click Save As, and then save the file to your desktop as “Show desktop.scf”. The Show desktop icon is created on your desktop.
  • Click and then drag the Show desktop icon to your Quick Launch toolbar.

Hope that helps someone.
