Restore the "Show Desktop" button.

  User-B6270506-B0CF-413D-B0B5707623FBE39D 13:47 06 Jun 2004

I have accidentaly deleted the "show desktop" button from my taskbar.

How do I go about restoring or creating a new one?

PS It is not in the recycle bin, I must have emptied it without checking.

In Xp create a shortcut to C:\WINDOWS\Show Desktop.scf

Thanks Mike,

But I can't find that file in the windows folder.

A quick search of my C: drive searching for files called "show" or "desktop" didn't bring up anything that looked right.

I should have said, I am using XP Pro.

Ok that's a bit of a worry, I suppose you did select "search system folders"

The location I gave was for XP home but it will be the same in pro.

That did the trick.

Thanks for the help gents.
