Awhile back I got a little too aggressive with the mouse and accidently dragged my show desktop shortcut from the Quick Launch Bar onto the desktop. I tried to correct it by dragging it back onto the Quick Launch Bar, but of course this didn't work. What it did was create a shortcut on the Quick Launch Bar to the shortcut that was now on my desktop that then actually handled showing the desktop. Here's how to get things back to normal:

  1. If you happen to have completely lost the Show Desktop shortcut create a text file called "Show Desktop.scf" and add the following text to it:

     

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

     

  2. Finally open up the following folder "C:\Documents and Settings\{Your User Name}\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" and drag the file into the folder.
