First check...

Right click the taskbar and open 'properties'. Unlock the taskbar. Drag the dotted line right a bit, then relock the taskbar.

Copy and paste the following text into Notepad.

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

Save the file as Show Desktop.scf then drag and drop the icon on the Quick Launch bar.

Thanks to both.. However Win ME seems not to activate anything with Foolsbane's copied to Notepad suggestion. Perhaps it is a Win 98 only mod?.Anymore from anyone please

Do a search for the file " Show Desktop " in Windows. Create a shortcut, cut and paste to the Desktop and drag it to the taskbar.
