Desktop Icon

  Border View 17:14 20 Aug 2006

On my old computer running Windows 98SE in the bottom left corner next to start there was an icon for desktop which you could click on. I am a new commer to XP and to get back to my desk top I have to minimise all my runners.

Can anyone please tell me if there is a quicker way to get back to the desk top under XP.

Sorry if this is a simple question, but i have yet to get to grips with XP.

Thank you for reading this post.

try a right click on the taskbar and go to toolbars put a tick in quick launch you could also lock the taskbar

Or press the Windows key + D.

right click on the taskbar and select properties gives more options including "keep the taskbar on top of other windows"

Like the Windows key and D - thanks VoG.
