I had a desktop toggle button in my systray for ages, suddenly it's disappeared, I found it very useful (and I now miss it). Does anyone know how I can get it back please?

In xp it's C:\WINDOWS\Show Desktop.scf create a shortcut to it.

I'm running ME

To recreate the "Show Desktop" icon in the quick launch task bar, type the following in Notepad, save the file on the Desktop as "Show Desktop.scf" and then drag it to the quick launch taskbar.

[shell]
command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
command=ToggleDesktop

Ignore that last message, the damned forum software has removed the carriage returns & line feeds to totally mess up the instructions. Grrrr!!

I'll try again with double spacing (which sould be removed).

Thank you for that.
