Restore the 'Show Desktop' icon

Has the 'Show Desktop' icon been removed from your Quick Launch bar? If you have never used this feature before, it was designed to allow you to quickly minimize all applications to the taskbar just by clicking a button.

Not to worry, you can quickly recreate this feature by performing the following steps below:
  • Open Notepad (from the Start Menu, select Run..., type "notepad.exe", then press Enter).
  • Copy and paste the following contents into Notepad:



  • Save the file as "showdesktop.scf" to your desktop.
  • Drag the file to the Quick Launch area of the taskbar.
