Hello, I had a desktop icon on the bottom left of the taskbar but it's disappeared. Does anyone know how i can get it back? Thanks

If the Show Desktop icon is deleted from Quick Launch, the procedure below will recreate the file.

Open Notepad and enter the following text:

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

Save the new file as Show Desktop.scf then drag and drop the icon on the Quick Launch bar or whatever location you want the shortcut to appear.

I hope that makes sense - from TheEldergeek.com

Thanks Lú-tzé, that's worked a treat. I'll just have to make sure in future my mum doesn't delete it again, lol!
